I absolutely love Brussels sprouts!  Along with stuffing, they are my favorite thing to pile on my plate at a turkey dinner!

This recipe is simple and quick but I had to share it because this is how my mom and my Grandma always served Brussels when I was young.

This recipe does call for Panko breadcrumbs. They are a lighter crispier bread crumb and perfect for making a crispy crust or topping in lots of recipes.  If you don’t have Panko you can certainly substitute regular breadcrumbs.  Panko breadcrumbs can often be found near the spices or in the Asian aisle of your grocery store (or online).
