I am beginning to loathe the child I was for the sole reason that I HATED brussel sprouts as a kid. What was wrong with me?? Now I can't cook them enough. Anyone have any good ways to cook brussel sprouts?

In a bowl coat with olive oil, add some sea or kosher salt and chopped fresh garlic. Roast in oven at 400* for 30-40 minutes.

Creamed brussel sprouts are fabulous.

What's not to like about the brussel sprout? They're tiny little cabbages, full of goodness.

They can be bitter when mishandled and very few kids like bitter.

+1. Render down the bacon until crisp. Cook onions and sprouts in the bacon grease. Yummy

Mmm... my mouth is watering. I love strong greens. Kale, collards, man.

Last Thanksgiving I did almost the same thing but with pancetta and then roasting the spouts. Major hit at dinner with everyone.

Microwave them for a bit. Toss them in a mixture of olive oil, salt, paprika, and dry mustard. Put on skewers and grill them. That's my favorite way to make brussels sprouts. They are good roasted and with bacon as well like others have mentioned.
