Dijon and Apple Brussels Sprouts

Dijon and Apple Brussels 1.3 LighterBrussels sprouts. You either love them or you hate them. I rarely see a person is impartial about them. I personally love them but my husband hates them. He calls them alien heads and that is not a term of affection I guess.

I often see brussels sprouts cooked with wine or bacon and although that is DELICIOUS I decided to try to incorporate some different flavors. I decided to go with Dijon being the base flavor this dish. I think it is a perfect flavor pairing with the bitter brussels flavor and tangy apple. I did a mixture of searing the brussels and then adding liquid to soften them to give them a crispy and tender texture. Feel free to add Bacon if you wish – I won’t judge ;).
