Forget the little mushy bullets served by Gran and try this. It's from a recipe from Wisconsin, in the US, and I can guarantee it is delicious.

Have everything ready to go when the rest of the meal is cooked, as it takes only a minute to whip up.

About 18 brussel sprouts
Juice of 1 lemon
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon oil

1. Chop the sprouts up. Either remove the bottom bit of the sprout and zap the sprouts through the slicer of a food processor, or cut in half, remove the core and slice very thinly.

2. Heat oil in a pan, add the sprouts and juice of half the lemon. Season with salt and black pepper. Cook for 60 seconds - no more, no less - stirring constantly.

3. Turn off the heat, add the rest of the lemon juice and the butter. Mix and serve.

Enjoy!
