Sautéed Brussels Sprouts

I was never a big fan of brussels sprouts until I tasted my friend Nicole’s recipe. She shreds them first and then sautés them in garlic and oil which really allows the seasoning to flavor every bite. I added some diced shallots along with the garlic and really enjoyed these. This would make a nice Thanksgiving side dish. Give this method a try if you don’t care for brussels sprouts, you might be pleasantly surprised like I was!
