I steam mine and then brown them. The browning, however you do it, makes all the difference.

Cook up some diced pancetta in a bit of olive oil. Then brown the cut sides of the halved sprouts in the fat for a couple minutes. Add some water, cover & steam for a couple more minutes until just tender.

Remove the sprouts, reduce some balsamic in the skillet, swirl in some butter. Toss the sprouts in the sauce.

YUM!

I like them with a little butter on them. I'm with Charlie about the soup--Brussels sprouts are a great addition to a tomato-based vegetable soup or stew. I also like cold, marinated Brussels sprouts.

I am quite fond of Brussels sprouts, but my DH gets nauseous at the smell, so none get cooked in this house. There was an incident, when he was a child, with burning a field of the stalks...

A squeeze of lemon juice will take away the bitterness. I use it on lots of vegies. Add salt and a little butter if you wish.

When I cook a roast with vegetables, I often add brussels sprouts with the potatoes and carrots. That juice from the meat makes them quite delectable!

I don't have a recipe, sorry! I have had them at other's houses. I think a good Italian dressing would work.
