Spring Brussel Sprouts

My kids love brussel sprouts! Their favorite is oven roasted with olive oil and salt and pepper. I stumbled onto a different recipe that included apples and onions and knew that we should try it at our house.

Big, big hit!
  • 1 lb. frozen brussel sprouts
  • 1 red skinned apples, cored and diced
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 3 TBS butter or margarine
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • 3 TBS apple cider vinegar
  • salt & pepper to taste
  1. Heat butter in deep skillet until just melted.
  2. Add to skillet: brussel sprouts, diced apples, diced onion, thyme. Allow to cook 5-10 minutes until vegetables begin to soften over medium-high heat.
  3. Reduce heat and add apple cider vinegar, salt and pepper to skillet and simmer an additional 10 minutes, stirring frequently.
Hint: If you like added texture, add some chopped pecans after cooking and before serving. My boys thought this would be good prepared ahead of time and chilled prior to serving too. (I ithink they may be onto something!) Enjoy!!
