    NOPE NOPE NOPE cant make me eat them lol...I too as a child was forced to eat foods I did not like. Liver and onions was one of them. To this day I cant stand the smell... I would spit it out in my napkin when no one was looking or sneak it to the dog....

    OOoohhh ...... LOVE LOVE LOVE brussel sprouts. My hubby hates them, but the kids will eat them. Haven't tried the fur-kids with them.

    I steam them or sometimes cut them in half and saute them in a little extra virgin olive oil with chopped up bacon and sometimes I add pine nuts. YUMMY!!!!


    Feeling hungry now .........

    @TessaAndSamson I honestly have no idea how to cook raw ones since nobody would eat them but me. I think they may taste like cabbages just because I always thought they were but honestly havent had cooked cabbage in years so I dont know. Go and find the green giant boxed frozen ones in the butter sauce. They are THE best by far. Yum! You all are making me want some. Gonna have to run to vons to find them I think. lol

    @TessaAnsSamson, I try to buy only fresh veggies and steam them. Ziplock invented these steamer bags (you can find them where the sandwich bags, foil, plastic wrap is kept in the store) that are FANTASTIC for all my veggies. Buy the Brussel Sprouts raw in the produce section at your grocery store, wash them put the amount you want in the bag with a a few Tbl. spoons of water and steam for 4 min. done!! Salt to taste. But as cal~jenn says the Green Giant frozen ones with light butter sauce are FANTASTIC also!!

    My parents did the same thing with me with "Baby Cabbages" and I too sat at the table tell it was bed time.... with out going to the bathroom as I might spit them out.... needless to say I never feed them to my kids... I have the same one word for them..... YUCK!!!!

    @KMARINO the green giant ones are delicious! i'll have to get those steamer bags. another good way to cook them is to split them, drizzle with olive oil or melted butter (or both) and season with thyme, lemon juice, salt and pepper. i bake them in the toaster oven at 400 until they smell good and give up some liquid, 20-30 mins approx.

    Bruce fixed us brussel sprouts for dinner last night because this thread made him hungry for them. Gracie didn't get any. But they sure were good!

    Awe poor Gracie!!! She doesnt know what she was missing tho so she will be ok. haha. @sheila that way of cooking them sounds yummy too. Maybe one of these days I will try to make some fresh ones even if it will just be for me and if I am lucky my daughter, probably not tho.
