Wild rice and brussel sprouts really compliment each other. Roast your sprouts, and serve them them on a bed of wild rice cooked in chicken broth with onions and celery.
I just haven't been the same
since that house fell on my sister.

I do something similiar but I also add mushrooms to the saute and then when I add the cream I add some shredded Asiago or Gruyere cheese and let it melt in off the heat.

I do a brussel sprout and chestnut thing at the holidays.

Roasted, peeled and seasoned chestnuts
Steamed B sprouts
Toss in brown (noisette) butter, drizzle with a little lemon, salt and pepper to taste

It's pretty yummy :)

One of my standard sides is to parboil the sprouts, then halve.

Semi-crisp some diced bacon, saute some thinly sliced leeks in some of the bacon fat, toss in the sprouts, then the bacon.

When I lived in Florida, our garden produced bumper crops of them. It is my husband's favorite vegetable, and my father loves them as well. Now I usually make do with frozen because they're of better quality than the fresh I can get. First of all, do your normal prep for them. Then steam them to the point where you like them (since I use frozen, at this point I microwave them until hot through). Depending on size, halve or leave whole. Then heat some butter in a skillet (anything from a quarter stick on up, depending on how many sprouts), put in the sprouts, THEN one of two things.

Easy-Peasy? take a tablespoon or two of orange juice concentrate and toss in with the butter until all is melted. Got the ingredients? Then the juice of one small or half a large orange, and a tablespoon or so of your favorite honey.

I just find that the orange and honey (or concentrate, which is sweeter, no need for honey, in my book, when using it) are really great pals with Brussels sprouts.
