Brussels Sprouts

How do you like to cook Brussels Sprouts?
I shread them then stir fry with crisped pancetta or bacon bits, & add some toasted almonds at the end.

I slice then in half (or leave em whole if small), toss with some olive oil and course salt and roast with high heat (500 degrees) until browned. Delish!

I trim the stem, cut them in half, steam them, then pour melted garlic butter over them. I'm the only one in the house that eats them, so I make them like I like!
I ain't got no sprinkle cheese. All I got's this here Velveeta cheese...

Lately I've been roasting them. Marinate first in olive oil, s& p, and dried herbes de Provence. They come out amazing! You can add other veggies as well, like carrots, cauliflower, potato chunks.... completely yummy. Even BS haters like them.
Wine is the food that completes the meal.

Sautee with butter, salt and pepper until cooked, then stir in a little honey and toated pine nuts.

Also roasted too along with parsnip, carrots, cauliflower...

I also roast them with olive oil, salt & pepper, but they are also good steamed and then tossed with Italian dressing and a little parmesan cheese doesnt hurt either! = )

I can't get enough of these: Bumped-Up Brussels Sprouts Recipe : Guy Fieri : Food Network

I literally could eat a huge plate of them.

No can do, any way shape or form! Can't get past the smell.
They do look cute though.

I normally blanch them until "just" tender, & then finish their cooking by braising in an obscene amount of butter.

Quicksilver - if you "can't get past the smell", then you've never enjoyed truly fresh Brussels Sprouts. Only those way past their prime have any sort of odor.
