Amaretto Garlic Butter Brussel Sprouts

A Holiday favorite of mom's, she was an Amaretto lover and anything with sliced almonds... you can add, pine nuts, or pistaschios, we even tried hazelnut with Frangelico, oh so delicious too!
1/2 pound brussel sprouts cleaned and ends cut off
2 large cloves of sliced garlic
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 tablespoons sliced almonds
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon Amaretto
sea salt
black pepper
Saute in a large fry pan heated oil, garlic and 1 tablespoon butter till garlic is golden. Remove garlic ( set aside in a bowl, big enough for the sprouts) Add sprouts back to the fry pan,  add almonds. Saute till golden on both sides about 15 minutes or to your taste. Add to saved garlic, rest of butter season with sea salt and pepper and Amaretto.
