Muscle Sprouts...

There are plenty of ways to make brussels sprouts, but I enjoy them this way. With a little added protein, why not call them muscle sprouts?

Here is what you'll need:
1 bag brussels sprouts from TJ's (about 20 brussels all together), quartered
2 tbsp Olive Oil
4 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1/4 c onion, chopped
1/4 chopped meat (prosciutto, salami, pancetta)
Pepper to taste

First, microwave your brussels for about 3-4 minutes, uncovered to soften them up. In a non-stick pan over medium, heat up the oil and then saute the onion, garlic and meat of your choice for about 3 minutes. Now add the brussels sprouts to the pan. Depending on your liking, you can add more olive oil at this point, and stir a few times. Cover the pan and let steam/saute for about 3 minutes, and then stir. Cover and steam/saute for another 3 minutes. Stir. Muscle Sprouts are ready when they are slightly toasted and a little brown on the edges. Eat up!
