Uncle John's Brussels Sprouts With Prosciutto and Leeks

50 mins (prep 30, cooking 20)
7 ingredients
8 servings
19 years ago, when our son was just about two months old, a group of single friends decided to have a "pot-luck" Thanksgiving dinner, and this was the dish that we were assigned to make. Our noses were a little out of joint at being assigned a dish, but it was and has continued to be such a hit that it has converted many a brussels sprouts hater to a lover, and everyone in our extended family now asks for the recipe every year. It's a bit heavy on the butter, but if the rest of your meal is relatively healthy, you can probably handle a half cup serving! (And it's diabetic friendly....) To speed preparation on the big day, you can clean, trim and slice the sprouts in half the day before, then keep them in ice cold water until it is time to cook. Note: To some extent we are guestimating the amount of Brussel sprouts needed -- my husband just says "get one of those plastic bags and fill it pretty full of nice, fresh sprouts!"
