    If you are a Brussel Sprout lover like my husband and I, then this is a must try recipe:

    1 pound Brussels sprouts
    Sour cream, enough to coat the batch
    4 pieces cooked backed, cut to pieces
    2 green onions, chopped

    Boil Brussels for 8 - 10 minutes. Drain water, add sour cream, bacon, onions and serve!


    You will never want Brussels any different way again.

    DH and I both detested brussel sprouts until on one particular visit to my husband’s family's home, dear SIL separated a boatload of sprouts, leaf by leaf, removing the bitter middle.  She then quickly sautéed them in Olive Oil and a second boatload of minced Garlic.  Some S&P at serving and she made believers out of us.

    That is the technique my husband and I had preferred. We also soak the Brussel sprouts in ice water an hour before cooking, and it really helps for the bitterness.

    As a lover of sprouts any way except over cooked and frozen are not very good. Most often I do roasted, shredded and braised or steamed as goto methods

    … just the core, like taking the core out of cabbage of iceberg lettuce.  Call us crazy, but that's the only way DH and I will eat brussel sprouts.  /img/vbsmilies/smilies/crazy.gif

    I'll try the sour cream tip. This year i cooked a lot of bechamel bacon & sprouts pies. Grated parm on top, gratin, done. Good with almost any veg: cauliflower, broccoli, etc.
