Hi, I've always boiled them (leaving them still just a little firm) and prinkled parmesan cheese on them. They are delicious this way!

I hear that the trick with Brussels sprouts is not cooking them for too long.

Put them in a vegetable stew last week:
- Brussel sprouts, maybe three cups?
- Zucchini
- Carrots, four or five large ones
- Onions, two
- garlic, three gloves
- herbs: thyme, oregano, basil and a cube of herbs
- a medium sized cabbage

Fried the onions and garlic in a tiny bit of olive oil, then put all the vegetables cut in pieces into the pan with the herbs and water. Serves about 6-8 people?

DWILSON67, are you referring to cutting the bacon being difficult? If you use scissors and cut across the slices with the cardboard underneath, you can peel the strip of cardboard off and you are left with the required size pieces that separate in the pan as you fry it.

When I was still eating bacon, I'd buy fully-cooked bacon and cut 4 strips at a time with kitchen scissors.

Here is a recipe I have recently found. I love it and could eat it almost every meal.

Boil until barely tender.
Mash in a dish with some plain yogurt, black pepper and nutmeg
Stir in cooked, chopped chestnuts.
Put in oven to brown the top a little.

Slice 2 onions into slivers. Place in greased or oiled flat baking dish.
Add a bag of brussels sprouts, halved on top.
Slice 2 juice oranges into 1/2 inch rings. Place on top of the brussels sprouts. If you are brave add lime slices.
Sprinkle liberally with not salt garlic herb seasoning.
Cover tightly with a lid or foil.

Bake 1 hour at 350.

If you have baby brussels sprouts, you really don't need to slice in half. When serving, dish up onions, sprouts, and orange slice all together.

Delicious.

Basically the same as what TAMMYOKAHARA said:

- a light coat of olive oil, hot oven, salt and pepper, cook until they start to brown. If you want a slightly lighter version, leave out the bacon. When they're about done, squirt lemon juice over them or a little balsamic vinegar.

- after slicing in half put in the steamer basket and steam or just a few minutes until tender if you want them 'fresh'. Again, serve with a little salt and pepper, and maybe a little acid (lemon juice or balsamic).

- steam them but less time, and then put in a pan with some oil and saute with onions and mushrooms. Put on top of a bed or rice or similar for a compete meal.

- some people shred them like you would regular cabbage and make a kind of slaw out of them or similar salad.

Slice in half, toss with olive oil, melted butter, salt, pepper and roast at 400 til caramelized. I toss in crisped bacon about three minutes before taking out.

I've been trying to add new vegetables into my diet and while I've had Brussels sprouts in the past once or twice, I didn't really care for them and I think it was how they were prepared.

Anyone got a way they prepare them that is really tasty?

Thanks.

Make it a great day!
Matt
