These aren't your grandmother's twists, which she probably did at the sock-hop to the latest Chubby Checker record. No, these twists, with nutty Parmesan, are crunchy, flavorful delights, adding a bit of whimsy to this delectable dinner of meaty steak and fresh Brussels sprouts. Twisting the night away? Hardly; this meal comes together in less than an hour. Come on, little miss... and put this meal in your basket. Tip: You don't need Paul Sorvino wielding a razor blade to get super thin slices of garlic. (That's from “Goodfellas,” for all you non-movie fans.) Just be sure to tuck the fingertips of your garlic-holding hand for safety, and use your knuckle as your guide.

Customize It Instructions
If using 14 oz. or 28 oz. NY strip steak, follow same instructions as sirloin steaks in Steps 1 and 4, working in batches if necessary, and cooking until steak reaches minimum internal temperature, 9-11 minutes per side. Rest, 3 minutes. Halve to serve.
If using chicken breasts, follow same instructions as sirloin in Steps 1 and 4, cooking until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes per side.
Prepare the Ingredients
Trim stems off Brussels sprouts and halve vertically (quarter if larger than a ping-pong ball).
Halve thyme sprigs.
Thinly slice garlic.
Remove puff pastry from refrigerator. Remove any paper from puff pastry. Cut lengthwise into four evenly-sized pieces. Refrigerate again.
Pat steaks dry, and season both sides with half the onion salt (reserve remaining for Brussels sprouts).
Start the Brussels Sprouts
Place Brussels sprouts on prepared baking sheet and toss with 1 tsp. olive oil and remaining onion salt. Massage oil and seasoning into Brussels sprouts.
Spread into a single layer, cut side down, on one side of baking sheet. Roast in hot oven, 15 minutes.
Remove from oven. Brussels sprouts will finish cooking in a later step.
While Brussels sprouts roast, prepare Parmesan twists.
Bake Parmesan Twists and Finish Brussels Sprouts
Combine mayonnaise and 2 tsp. water in a mixing bowl.
Remove puff pastry strips from refrigerator. Brush or gently spoon mayonnaise mixture on pasty strips, covering one side completely. Gently press on half the Parmesan. Flip, and repeating adding mayonnaise mixture and Parmesan to second side. Top with a pinch of salt.
Gently twist each strip twice, resulting in two loops. Place twist on empty half of baking sheet, pressing ends down gently to keep in place. Repeat with remaining strips.
Bake until twists are golden brown and Brussels sprouts are browned, 10-12 minutes.
While twists and Brussels sprouts bake, cook steaks.
Cook the Steaks
Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil.
Add steaks to hot pan and cook until browned and steaks reach a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 4-6 minutes per side.
Remove from burner. Rest steaks, at least 3 minutes.
While steaks rest, make garlic thyme butter.
Make Garlic Thyme Butter and Finish Dish
Place a small non-stick pan over medium-low heat. Add butter and 1 tsp. olive oil to hot pan and let melt, 1-2 minutes.
Add garlic and thyme sprigs. Stir often until garlic is softened, 1-2 minutes. If garlic begins to brown, remove from heat immediately.
Remove from burner. Carefully remove thyme sprigs and reserve.
Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping steak with garlic thyme butter and drizzling Brussels sprouts with balsamic glaze. Serve with reserved thyme sprigs for decoration, if desired. Bon appétit!
