Soften garlic butter:

  1. To soften the butter fast, place a cup of water in a microwave and heat it up until it boils. This will take about a minute and a half.

    Then, quickly open the microwave door and place stick of butter that is still wrapped close to the cup (but not touching). Close the door.

    Let the butter sit in the microwave for 5-10 minutes. Take it out and it will be softened.

    After that, mix butter with garlic and lemon juice in a small bowl. Easy way to mix it is to use a fork to mash and mix.

Brussels sprouts:

  1. Preheat oven to 425.

  2. Peel the very outer, darker green leaves off the sprouts and cut off the small stem. Cut sprouts in half, length-wise.

  3. Mix cut Brussels sprouts with soft garlic butter in a large bowl. Be gentle but thorough. Don’t be afraid to use your hands.

  4. Spread prepared sprouts in a large baking sheet, in one even layer.

  5. Bake for 20-30 minutes, depending on how soft you prefer them.
