Brussels Sprouts with Browned Butter and Breadcrumbs

I went to the store several weeks ago and noticed a bag of pre-shredded Brussels sprouts.  Hellooooo Brussels sprouts!  I picked up the bag, mulled over what I could do with them, but eventually decided not to stray from my grocery list.  The following week, I was again drawn to the shredded Brussels sprouts, and decided that two weeks of wanting Brussels sprouts must mean that I needed to just make some already!

So glad I did.  Because that meant I had the opportunity to make try out this recipe.  The pre-shreddded bag definitely saves on time (although you could shred them yourself, or use whole Brussels sprouts and just boil them until tender), and the browned butter and bread crumbs give them a wonderful taste and texture.  I think I made this recipe three times before my bag of sprouts was used up.  And I enjoyed it every time.

1/2 teaspoon salt, more to taste
2 cups Brussels sprouts, shredded
