Just when did Brussels Sprouts become a holiday dish? I surely do not remember my mother ever serving them as part of a holiday meal. Creamed carrots, or creamed petite peas and pearl onions, One veggie was always creamed in a white sauce. But never Brussels Sprouts.

I always tried to get some extra white sauce to add to my smashed or baked taters.

A lot of TV chefs are touting making roasted Brussel Sprouts for their holiday meal. I have been cooking holiday meals for 60 years or so. Never once did Brussel Sprouts cross my mind.

I made Brussels sprouts with bacon and mushrooms for Christmas or Thanksgiving since before our kids were born in 1980. I guess I was ahead of the curve!

Those cream dishes are inedible to me. Though they are very popular, does anyone really get excited by them these days. Kind of like an old fashioned baloney in jello mold.

I dont mean for that to be mean spirited. I just can't stand creamed food of any kind.

That being said, I have had an odd craving for creamed tuna on toast lately.

I dont really think there are any rules about Holiday food anymore.

We and more than a few folks I know do bbq or smoked meats for Christmas dinner. Smoked Brussels sprouts fits right in there as well.

We often have Brussels Sprouts on holidays. Usually steamed and buttered. Mom and aunts made Brussels Sprouts for holidays also.
