Brussels Sprouts

Brussels Sprouts - you either love them or you hate them. In our house it's both; I love them, Mike hates them. But it wasn't always that way. As a child, I'd watch my mom & sister eat them, but I wanted no part of the little cabbage-like vegetable. But one day, for some unknown reason, I decided to give them another try. Delicious!

Tonight I just boiled some frozen brussels sprouts until tender & added tiny bit of butter. I boiled them just long enough so that they were tender but not mushy. My sister prepares brussels sprouts recipe that features pancetta & walnuts, which is wonderful.

How do you like your sprouts?

It took me years to love them too! lol

I LOVE them right off the stalk. I cut them in half, put olive oil, salt and pepper on them and bake them in the oven until done and slightly browned. They are to die for!
