The vegetables can be prepared the day before, and the glaze can be prepared up to 6 hours in advance. The dish can then be completed in a few minutes while the turkey is resting. It all looks so effortless.

Directions

  1. Blanch carrots in a large pot of boiling salted water until crisp-tender, about 4 minutes. Transfer carrots to bowl of ice water using slotted spoon. Return water to boil. Add sprouts and blanch until crisp-tender, about 5 minutes. Transfer to another bowl of ice water. Drain vegetables, and refrigerate if making ahead.
  2. Bring stock, butter or margarine, and brown sugar to a boil in a heavy large skillet. Stir until sugar dissolves. Boil until reduced by half, about 7 minutes. Can be prepared 6 hours ahead; return to boil before continuing. Add carrots. Cook until almost tender and sauce begins to coat, shaking pan occasionally, about 6 minutes. Add Brussels sprouts and pepper. Cook until heated through, stirring occasionally, about 4 minutes.

We Loved this recipe! After reading the other reviews and making this for myself, I've come to this conclusion...When "blanching" your veggies, cook them until the are the tenderness YOU like. I cooked mine quite a bit longer than the recipe called for. When making the sauce, I did NOT add the pepper, at all. I figured that is something that could be added at the table to an individuals liking. If serving to guests, be prepared to share the recipe! This one's a keeper!

I have always hated brussels sprouts since i was a kid because they were so bitter. things change as you grow up. So I figured I'd try it again. holy cow! This recipe was awesome. Triple the recipe, you'll eat most of them before they are served. they come out super yummy. and don't worry, you can't use too much butter. :)
