Looks like we're all on the same page - more or less.

I like to cut in half, steam until just tender and then toss into a skillet with butter and a smidge of bacon grease and saute for 2-4 minutes - then top with crumbled bacon.

You can use almonds, walnuts or Pecans toast them first add last after cooking. Another good way is to blanch them cut in half salt and pepper them then make some brown butter and toss them together.

I like to roast mine too. First, reduce some balsamic vinegar until thick.

Cut Brussels sprouts in half, toss with olive oil and kosher salt. Lay out in a single layer and drizzle with vinegar. Roast at about 375 for 15 minutes or so and see if they need turning. They will turn brown on the side down on the pan. Once browned on that side turn and brown on the other.

I have not had brussle sprouts in a long time. One of the few veggies I like, DH hates. I usually steam mine and toss with butter and cumin. Very tasty!!! Thanks for all the great ideas!

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

1 pound Brussels sprouts -- peeled, trimmed, halved
2 cloves garlic -- minced
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
salt and pepper -- to taste

Preheat oven to 325 F. Place Brussels sprouts and garlic in a bowl, and add olive oil slowly, tossing so that sprouts are lightly coated.

Arrange Brussels sprouts in a single layer on a baking sheet and sprinkle with red pepper flakes, salt and pepper.

Roast for 10 minutes. Remove and cover with foil; return pan to oven and roast 10-15 minutes more.

very similar: add chopped pancetta (Italian bacon) and a hotter oven 375 ... shake every 5 min...last 5 min sprinkle with balsamic . A sprinkle of thyme is optional.

ROasted sprouts, no matter how you do them, are great. ROasting brings out the sweetness and caramelizes them. so good!
