Here's a quotable quote for you Dawg and GG..

Brussels Sprouts- The Hannibal Lecter of food. This number one villain is downright sinister. Put it in your microwave and you will need a new one. Put it in your mouth you may never be the same. As I've gotten older, I've broadened my taste, I love asparagus on the grill, spinach in an omelet and broccoli in my salad. Brussels sprouts, as long as I live you will never win me over so just keep your vitamins A, C and folic acid because it's not happening, ever.

Absolutely poetic, Kayelle! Love it!

However, our dear Katy is determined to use BS in her quiche. In which case, I am totally useless.

Good one, Kayelle!

I have to wonder if the new co-workers are pranking her with the suggestion

I have the definite impression that Brussels sprouts are more appreciated in the UK.

Maybe. Maybe there's an inside joke about sprouts in someone's dish at a past potluck.

J/k, Katie

Without backtracking, didn't Katy say the two who requested the quiche also requested brussels sprouts be in it?
I've never eaten a quiche, so don't know what would make a good ingredient and what wouldn't, but if someone asked me to make something specifically for them I'd tend to cater to that person(s).

Katy did mention that sprouts had been requested.

They are very much "Marmite" here too Taxy! (you either love them or loathe them). But they just about always show up on a traditional Christmas meal table regardless!

Luckily, I like them very much!
