brussels sproutsThis unfussy recipe comes from the pages of James Beard's American Cookery. Beard recommends serving this as a side for Thanksgiving dinner, describing it as "an extraordinarily good combination and one which nowadays is very easy to prepare." The ingredient list is concise and the method brief, so prepping and preparation won't disrupt that strict holiday cooking timeline you've probably already plotted. Beard, never one to oppose ramped up flavor, endorses generous extra butter and parsley at the finish.
