Brussels Sprouts with Toasted Almonds

Brussels Sprouts with Toasted Almonds is a recipe that will make you want to eat your Brussels.   I know those are fighting words for a lot of you, but I promise this dish is delish.  If you are a lover of the little cabbage this will soon become one of your favorite ways to serve them.  The nutty flavor of the brussels sprout, with the creamy Marcona Almonds and the salty parmesan breadcrumb cheese topping, is perfect little flavor harmony.

I hosted a party last Saturday for our friends and family to show them how thankful we are for them during this Thanksgiving season.  Each year when I throw this party I serve up the traditional Thanksgiving turkey with all the trimmings, but I try to come up with a new twist on the side dishes we all love.
Brussels Sprouts always have to make an appearance and this year it was Brussels Sprouts with Toasted Almond and it was a huge hit.  Several requests for the recipe let me know that people really truly loved it, plus there was none left.  Which made my husband sad the next day when he was digging through the refrigerator trying to find the leftovers.   This was the second most requested recipe from that night.  My Mashed Sweet Potato with Bourbon Glaze recipe that I will be sharing with you tomorrow was the first, so don’t forget to check back and check it out.
Note: You can trim up and steam Brussels Sprouts earlier in the day and reheat.
