  1. For those sprout lovers, how do you like to eat them?
  2. Oh, I love them sprinkled with salt and pepper and roasted in the oven! :drool: I've also had them sprinkled with parmesan cheese at a restaurant and it was delicious!
  3. Ooooo my favorite veggie!!
    Ok first way, lightly steamed served with seared salmon.:drool:
    Sauteed with garlic and my aunt adds some pasta water to braise them, I guess the starch mellows the bitterness?
    Oven roasted with olive oil salt and pepper. NeedLoub:ghi5:
    Deep fried individual leaves.:drool:

  8. I love brussel sprouts! I've never roasted them so I'm going to try this.:smile:

    I like smaller ones lightly boiled and covered in black pepper. Love the idea of garlic in there too - haven't tried that but I will!
  9. I love Brussell Sprouts too.

    Here's how my DH will eat them.....

    If frozen.....microwave them with butter, salt, pepper, honey and pecans.
    If fresh.......pan fried, shredded with browned butter and toasted chopped pecans.
