Quick Notes

I tripled this recipe for my Thanksgiving meal to adequately serve my family. Please note, this recipe yields 4 servings per the ingredients.

Variations

Onions can be used to substitute the shallots.

The entire recipe can be performed on a stove top, but the roasting of the brussels sprouts seems to draw out more flavor.
