LOVED this recipe, making it for my husband in the middle of an afternoon was a satisfying snack! Chopped garlic is a great addition too.

Antonia, thanks! One of my trademarks in the kitchen tends to be laziness, so half of my Brussels sprouts are scored and the other not, because I got impatient. I honestly cannot tell the difference.
Brusslies could be a brand name - like that!

Yummmm! These look so tasty. I am DEFINITELY going to try this recipe next weekend. Thanks for posting it. BTW, do you score the cut end of each Brussels sprout with a cross-shaped cut? I always have, when steaming. I've never blanched Brussles sprouts (or "Brusslies," as we call them in my house), so I don't know if it makes a difference when cooking them that way.
