Brussel Sprouts can be delicious, this how we have learned to eat them
pull the leaves apart and saute in olive oil garlic s&p to a crisp-tender
and bob's your uncle
I've converted many a folk to this technique rather than that absolutely
NASTY
way of serving them the way our parents did, I could never get them down
I'm old enough now to say "NO" when offered brussels sprouts...

I'm glad you don't like Brussels sprouts PF and Dawg. And all you other haters out there. More for K-Girl and me and the rest of us who love those mini-beauties. Thank you.

There are many more palatable ways of serving brussel sprouts than overboiling them until they are soggy. I prefer to bring them to the boil (in a little water, i.e. not immersed fully) then lowering the heat substantially and barely simmering until al dente. That way the outer leaves are not mushy.

A nice alternative is halving them and sauteeing them with pancetta (and perhaps roasted chestnuts at xmas).

Also grated into a coleslaw is another way with them (might need something sweet in the coleslaw to counteract their sharpness though, e.g. raisins).
