Confession: this dish is the first taste I've had of brussel sprouts. I've only ever seen them steamed or boiled or something mushy and nasty sounding like that... Slicing them up thinly and sauteing it in delicious olive oil with sweet caramelized onions... mmmmmm. I need to add bacon. Doesn't that sound amazing? Bacon will definitely be entering the dish next time. And nuts. So good!

Serves 2-4 as a side dish
12-14 large brussel sprouts
2(ish) tbsp olive oil, divided
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 medium onion, finely chopped
salt and pepper to taste
Start warming up your cast iron skillet. (If you don't have one, GET ONE. They are amazing, last forever and make everything taste 10x better.)
Add oil and onions to the hot pan. Cook until caramelized, 6-7 minutes. Make sure you don't let them get too brown or they'll taste burnt, not sweet and delicious.
Add garlic, stir and cook for 30 seconds. Add more oil and the brussel sprouts. Cook for 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until tender. I like to leave mine with a bit of crunch to it.
Serve warm and enjoy!
