    This. With a little (ok, a bunch) of melted butter? Mmmm, like mini-salad/broccolis.

    Butter, but also sprinkle them with garlic salt. Took me a few years to find that one out - delicious.
  • I heard Bruge was better...

    Of course, of course, but then, put a little sumac on them. I learned that on a trek through the Levant.

    Fresh FTW, agreed, but have you had the frozen 'steam in the bag' sprouts? They're pretty decent.

    Roasted brown and crisp in a hot oven with olive oil, coarse salt and cracked black pepper. Awesomeness.

    That said, as much as I do like Brussels sprouts, at no time in my life have I ever said, "What? No Brussels sprouts??? I don't want to live without Brussels sprouts!" I'll make do with other greens if they get too spendy.
  • Hate to disagree... wait, no I don't.
    I loathe those things
    I will never, if I can help it, eat another one again in my life.

    There are some vegetables I hated as a kid I will eat now... those are not one of them.
  • If fresh and cooked lightly or well, can be delicious. Do it wrong and pay a price.

    I'm certain all of the fresh vegetables will go up in price drastically in 10 years. Only then will people truly appreciate them.
  • Mom likes to sautee them with mustard and molasses. It doesn't sound like a palatable combination, but it works.
  • Some lady was cooking Indian food on the TV today, and she chopped the Brussel's Sprouts up like cabbage or greens and cooked it that way with chick peas and spices. Really want.

    that works on the grill too

    Sumac, it's not just for Zahtar bread anymore.

    I'll take cities in Belgium for $500, Alex
  • Boiled with vinegar isn't bad either.
  • Real men just eat raw ones like an apple.
  • Fresh Brussels sprouts, steamed to perfection, drenched in a mixture of olive oil, lemon juice, white vinegar, black pepper and cavender's Greek seasoning. That be some tasty shiat.
  • i will eat fresh or frozen ones. fresh ones with a little olive oil on the grill. yum

    Yeah that sounds pretty damn good too.
  • im cool with this. never liked them never will. theres plenty of other things to eat.
  • fusillade762: Mom likes to sautee them with mustard and molasses. It doesn't sound like a palatable combination, but it works.


    I'm going to try this. Any suggestions on the ratio of mustard to molasses? Should I be using regular yellow mustard? Do I cut them in halves?

  • Valiente: Do.
    Not.
    Want.


    If you just guess how to prepare them, they turn out terrible. But if made properly they are super good. I'll guess I could make some that you liked. I've actually never met anyone who disliked any member of the cabbage family that I have cooked, in spite of the fact that they are among the most stereotypically loathed foods. It is just so easy to cook them in a way that they are downright disgusting.
  • Blanch them for a bit then saute in butter.

    Delicious!
  • Salt and melted butter makes them tasty. Of course, salt and melted butter can make an old tire edible.
