Pan-Seared Ranch Brussels Sprouts

“Ewwww Brussels sprouts!” We probably said that as a kid at some point. We grew up in a generation that boiled their Brussels sprouts, so there’s no wonder we didn’t like them as kids!
It’s safe to say now we absolutely adore these little sprouts. This is such a tasty, simple and easy to prepare dish that your whole family will love it, including the kids!
