Despite the bacon and brown butter, the overall flavor of this dish is surprisingly light and refreshing, thanks to the crisp, tender texture of the Brussels sprouts and a generous squirt of lemon. It's light, healthy and decadent all at the same time.
When I saw the mass of comments raving about the dish from Momofuko online, , I figured I had to try it. With a last-minute plea to bring Brussels sprouts to my friend's Thanksgiving leftover party, it was a shoo-in.
A good dinner party means clean plates, numerous wine glasses, and empty bottles of wine, laughter and lovely music. It is the kind of evening where everyone wants to linger and no one wants to say goodbye.
