Yummm! My son and I (only) love them. Never tried roasting them but will try to remember to tuck some in next time I shove a chicken in the oven. Were yours fresh or frozen, GB?

By the way, try a hefty squeeze of fresh lemon over the top, no matter how you cook them ...

They are also good cut in half and sauteed with bacon.

I preheated the oven to 400. I then cut off the end of the brussel sprouts and cut most of them in half. The very small ones stayed whole. They were tossed in olive oil and then got a heavy dose of ground black pepper and salt. They went into the oven. i gave the pan a good shake after about 15 minutes. the roasted for about 30 minutes or so. After they came out of the oven I gave them another dose of salt.

My wife, who had never had brussel sprouts before, but had heard nothing good about them, loved them. I could not get enough of them. My daughter wanted nothing to do with them

I can't wait to make these again. The only problem is that they made the house stink.
Wow! That sounds good. I love brussels sprouts with just butter. My family doesn't like them as much as I do, so they just buy the frozen ones with butter already on them. But I've had boiled before too. It's all good.

I want some ..... hotdogs...

We eat pounds and pounds of Brussel Sprouts.

I love them roasted but I use higher heat, like Breezy. After reading Barbara Kafka's "Roasting" book, I always crank up the heat to 450 or so.

I also mince them and sautee with olive oil and garlic.

I high heat roasted some green beans the other day and topped them with some lemon juice and pecorino romano and they were very good. I am going to do this with BS soon.

I love Brussels sprouts shredded and then effectively stir fried in olive oil. Towards the end, I sprinkle in a little cinnamon and nutmeg. Delicious. They don't smell while cooking and they keep their appetising green colour.

When I said "mince" Imeant shred. But I shred with a knife.

Shredded BS are excellent in Bubble and Squeak as a replacement for cabbage.
