Default Brussel Sprouts

Is there any more reviled vegetable than the brussel sprout? It seems like practically everyone hates them. Except me. It's one of my favorite vegies. Can't get enough of them.

I like them too, always have, "little cabbages" I used to call them as a kid.
now I roast a lot of vegies in the cast iron skillet, brussels sprouts too.

Brussels sprouts are one of my favorites, along with cauliflower, broccoli, and spinach.

I like them also, except when I left some fresh ones in the freezer too long. They were good when I was given them, but really tough after a long stint in the freezer.

Fresh ones are available most of the year now around here, so I like those for roasting. They are also available frozen, which makes a nice convenience food for steaming.

I like them also with a cheese sauce poured over them. And all the stuff that spruce mentioned. Niska makes a really good stew with them, beef, onions, potatos and carrots. With some kind of a broth she leaned how to make as a kid.

Prepare your sprouts and half lengthwise, and use in your stir fry when you can't get bok choy, etc. Frozen sprouts work well, too.

My favorite is to cut in half, toss in olive oil, sprinkle with garlic salt, place on baking sheet and roast in oven @400 for about 25-30 minutes or until lightly browned and getting crispy, pretty much the same for cauliflower.
