Brussel sprouts...help!

Anyone have any interesting recipes for brussle sprouts besides cooking them with bacon? Trying to find a tasty and healthy way to cook them. I've never cooked these before so I am excited to try it!

Trim the bottom, cut them in half, and toss with some oil, S&P. Roast in a 450ºF oven until they're softened in the center, and dark brown all along the edges.

My favorite way to cook 'em.

I like the idea of roasting them, but way back when, I used to make them palatable by making a sauce:

Just like white sauce, 1:1:1. Butter, Bisquick, evaporated milk. It is a lovely flavor of it's own, especially with some grated cheddar thrown in. Just toss the roasted Brussels Sprouts in the sauce, or serve on the side.

I had always thought of it as something I should cook, but they were so bitter. I just bought frozen, and by slicing them in half or quarters, exposed the insides to this sauce. It was really good.

I've been getting in the mood again because of all the posts where they roast them or saute in bacon fat. I don't see why I can't roast or saute a pack of frozen BS then add them to the Bisquick sauce. Hmm.

I put them on the grocery list.

I love DC ideas. New twist on an old recipe.

That's how I cook them, much better than boiling them.

I sauté them all the time. Something I never liked as a kid and this past couple years can't get enough of.
Trim the end, cut in half, peel away the loose leaf or two, place them in some heated EVOO flat side down and sauté til golden brown, turn them over with some tongs, turn the teat down to low, S&P, slowly add a little chicken stock and put a lid on them for ten minutes or so.
