These take just a brief turn in the pan--slicking the sprouts cuts down on their cooking time. The dish's sweet, buttery flavors mellow the bite of the Brussels sprouts. This is a slight modification of a recipe from Cooking Light, December 2002. The photo credit: Becky Luigart-Stayner; Lydia DeGaris-Pursell
