Pan Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Vegetable Outcast
Brussels sprouts may bring back horrible childhood memories for a lot of people, but when cooked properly  they are an amazing addition to any meal. In this recipe, the sprouts are pan-roasted until crisp and golden on the outside and tender on the inside, then finished with crunchy walnuts and tangy balsamic vinegar. Delicious enough to convert any Brussels sprout hater!
