6 servings (serving size: 3/4 cup)

Pulse a (1 1/2-ounce) slice of bread in the food processor to make 1/3 cup fresh breadcrumbs.

How to Make It

Step 1

Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add garlic; cook 1 minute or just until golden, stirring constantly. Add breadcrumbs; cook 1 minute or until lightly browned, stirring constantly. Transfer garlic mixture to a small bowl.

Step 2

Separate leaves from Brussels sprouts; quarter cores. Heat remaining 1/2 teaspoon oil over medium heat. Add leaves and cores to pan; cook 8 minutes or just until leaves wilt and cores are crisp-tender, stirring frequently. Remove from heat; toss with breadcrumb mixture, salt, and pepper. Top with walnuts and cheese.

Very good

Rather than separate the leaves, we sliced whole spouts very thin, then followed recipe to crisp-tender.  Excellent side to CL's peppercorn-crusted beef.

I like the breadcrumbs, nuts, and cheese, but the sprouts did not cook enough. I would roast the brussel sprouts and then add the other ingredients.

This recipe is amazing. It's a bit of work, but my son, who doesn't even like brussels sprouts, loves it!

I HATE brussel sprouts, but have been trying to find recipes to make for my husband and 3 year old, since I know they're good for us. This recipe rocks! I followed the recipe pretty closely, though I might have added a touch more cheese (I just guessed at the amount). I even had 3rds I liked it so much!

I've now made this recipe 3 times to 3 different groups of friends and family - and it was a hit each time. Very light and very elegant. My best friend even liked them - and she hates brussel sprouts.

I followed this recipe exactly and it was outstanding! I am always looking for new brussels sprouts recipes since it is my favorite vegitable, and this one is at the top of the list.
