I can see this is quite an anti Brussel Sprout Forum of Members ... so far it is the most disliked veggie.

@ V,

Even chocolate brownie cheesecake or white chocolate cheesecake with mangos ?

Thanks for all the interesting replies ...
Ciao. Off to take drive, to explore ...

I am very fond of Brussel sprouts, but I almost never get to eat them. DH gets nauseous at the smell. It has to do with an entire field of Brussels sprouts on fire, when he was a kid. (I wouldn't have thought they could catch fire like that.)

They do have that unpleasant side effect too.

Nope, just can't stand the taste. I want to like it because it comes in so many amazing flavours and varieties, just like the ones you mentioned.

At family functions, someone usually brings a cheesecake. And everyone always tells me to try it because "it doesn't even taste like cheesecake". I always give it a taste, hoping to like it. But haven't found one I liked yet :(

I had to look it up and I have to agree.

Salmon(cooked).......nasty strong taste, however I love lox.

lima beans........it's a texture thing

sweet potatoes......especially disgusting with marshmallow topping

brussel sprouts........although I'm about to try them again. I saw a recipe for them with BACON. We all know most anything is tolerable with bacon.

I agree, but you should try the Brussels sprouts only lightly cooked. Much nicer when the colour hasn't gone a bit khaki/yellowish.

I bet you would like gravad laks (marinated salmon).
