Crispy Garlicky Brussels Sprouts

brussels sprouts2I started eating brussels sprouts about two years ago, give or take, and the only thing I’m mad about is not giving these beauts a chance a long time ago.  I LOVE THEM!!!  Like always, my mama is the one who taught me how to make them. 😉  Have you noticed a pattern here?  Culinary school ain’t got nothin’ on ole’ Syb!  (I know.  That was terrible English.)  Let’s move on.
