On the big day Amy will eat her sprouts with chestnuts and pancetta - a family tradition.

Almost anything is edible when served with bacon. Pancetta is just fancy Italian unsmoked bacon.

If you get the really large Brussels Sprouts and break them up like lettuce, you can wilt them in butter and garlic and they come out fantastic.

Well, duh. That's the butter and garlic. They make anything taste good. Why, using them, I bet you could even get people to eat snails.

You know, I loves me some sprouts, but I couldn't possibly eat that many in a year.  I don't think I've eaten that many in my entire life.
 
2012-12-23 10:42:58 AM
We were at a party earlier this year, and the host served Brussels Sprouts that had been oven-roasted after being drizzled in bacon grease, salt, pepper, and fresh garlic.  the bottoms were sliced flat so they stood upright.

The outside layers were crispy like parchment paper, and the insides had caramelized and were quite sweet and tender.

Definitely worth a try!

While I don't eat anything close to 10,000 a year, Brussels sprouts ARE my favorite vegetable. My family won't touch them so I generally get to make them any way I like and eat all of them. I'll usually have some as part of my birthday meal request as well as a few other times a year. I'll gladly eat them steamed with butter and salt or pan fried with bacon and onion, or oven roasted with just some salt. Hell, I could make a meal of just Brussels sprouts.

Many moons ago, I worked at in the Stop & Shop frozen foods section. There was a lady who had us order and set aside a case, CASE(!), of frozen brussel sprouts for her every week. Sure enough, she came in every week and bought them. Her house must have smelled like propane & hot summer swamp.

I was never a fan of them but mother would crack my knuckles if I didn't eat them. So, I would always choke them down first how that the rest of the meal could wash away the bitterness. Now I have recently found that if you bake them slowly along with and in the juices of a roast, they are amazing and just melt beefy goodness all over the taste buds.

I love brussels sprouts.. the more the merrier... keep 'em coming!

Oh the way to 'neutralise' the effects of sprouts is to boil them with onion and worcestershire sauce... trust me, I do that every year and nobody suffers!
I prepare mine in advance though, maybe that helps too. But you can rest assured, I'll be eating them well into the new year and beyond.
Excellent in stir-fries and fabulous roasted with garlic or deep fried in a southern-style coating.
If I can convert tofu haters into tofu lovers, then I'm doing something right!

metal_gear: I bet the smell of her urine could run you out of the house!


If you want funky urine smell, here ya go:

1. Get a bundle of asparagus from your grocery store. Get thin stalks, not thick ones; thick is tough and flavorless in the asparagus department.
2. Steam it; don't boil it. It takes about 12 minutes on high steam, give or take a few seconds. Boiling takes away all the good parts.
3. For a super tasty treat, coat that asparagus with http://allrecipes.com/recipe/blender-hollandaise-sauce/. If you are extremely lazy and cannot do squat, much like the current president of the United States who is capable of spending trillions of his citizens' tax dollars and not explaining where they went, just a little garlic salt will do.
4. After an hour, enjoy that funky urine smell!

Don't blame yourself. They already don't see eye to eye.

It is because the brussels sprouts show her the "o" face while she eats them.

Robert1966: Why is this surprising? Cabbage is a staple of English cuisine, and Brussels sprouts are essentially tiny cabbages.


I've heard of "a crucifer a day", but 30??

on the road: Smurfme: Block half her face with you finger and then the other half. It's 2 different people!

I think she might be one of those genetic chimera, with the left half of her face belonging to her twin sister who fused with her during pregnancy.


There some interactive exhibits that let you see how asymmetric our faces are, it's pretty surprising. Most people don't think either symmetric version of their face looks like them. There's also research that indicates that we don't find symmetric faces attractive.

AnyName: 10 large Brussels sprouts, quartered
8 slices of thick cut applewood bacon -- cook until crispy

crumble the bacon
put the quartered Brussels sprouts and bacon in a pan and drissle with extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper to taste (I used very little salt, and a moderate amount of pepper)
bake in oven on top shelf at 400 degrees, until the Brussels sprouts are browned on one side


Here's my brussel sprouts:

Cook up a few slices of bacon in a cast iron pan, set them aside on a paper towel
Toss the sprouts in the pan using the bacon drippings and a little salt and pepper
Add some walnuts or pecans
Put the pan in the oven and roast for 20-25 minutes at 400
When finished, crumble the bacon on it

If you don't have a cast iron pan, just carefully transfer the drippings to an oven dish.

Everyone loves this, it is delicious.

notmtwain: On the big day Amy will eat her sprouts with chestnuts and pancetta - a family tradition.

Almost anything is edible when served with bacon. Pancetta is just fancy Italian unsmoked bacon.


Mirsread pancetta as placenta :P

I occasionally have brussels sprouts, and find them quite edible, although the little suckers better being swimming in butter. Don't eat them so much lately as I tend to prefer spinach, but whatever...
 
2012-12-23 06:51:29 PM

ongbok: 10,000 Brussel sprouts a year! Hate to see her underwear. Or be in the same room with her for too long. Brussel sprouts gives me a case of gas that only rivals the White Castle's gas.

I remember a couple of years ago our raccoon, Ronnie, came up to the deck looking for her nightly treats. I squatted down to give her a half of a peanut butter sandwich and in doing so let off a SBD.
She still grabbed the sandwich but looking at me with a disgusted look she immediately retreated to the other side of the deck and did not come back near me for 5 minutes.
And yes, brussel sprouts were involved.
As for the person who says that this type of thing only happens with folks who don't eat enough vegetables, having lived in close quarters with a vegetarian, I only can say I wish I knew as little about the subject as they did, as the old woman said when the Pope gave a talk of the joys of large families.

bmihura: metal_gear: I bet the smell of her urine could run you out of the house!

If you want funky urine smell, here ya go:

1. Get a bundle of asparagus from your grocery store. Get thin stalks, not thick ones; thick is tough and flavorless in the asparagus department.
2. Steam it; don't boil it. It takes about 12 minutes on high steam, give or take a few seconds. Boiling takes away all the good parts.
3. For a super tasty treat, coat that asparagus with http://allrecipes.com/recipe/blender-hollandaise-sauce/. If you are extremely lazy and cannot do squat, much like the current president of the United States who is capable of spending trillions of his citizens' tax dollars and not explaining where they went, just a little garlic salt will do.
4. After an hour, enjoy that funky urine smell!


Nah, grill it. If you must, wrap it in tinfoil with olive oil and effectively fry it on the grill(10-15minutes depending on size of stalk)

It's one of the causes, but not the only one. For instance I (thank god) have no wall-eyeing going on. I will however accept your gesture of truce!

It's definitely changed. For a time, "smoking hot" meant a 20 stone boat anchor with a face like a pig's arse with frostbite, now it would appear to be any woman featured in a tabloid regardless of appearance.

Standards are definitely slipping. There was a time when you'd cringe just to click those links.

Catlike Typist: bikkurikun: Why are Brussels sprouts a holiday food in the UK?

This! I'd never heard of it before this year. Hardy winter vegetable or something?


Brussel sprouts are a staple of a good ol' fashioned roast dinner.  i.e. roast beef/lamb/turkey/chicken with sides of mashed potatoes, roast potatoes, and several kinds of winter vegetables with gravy made from the meat juices and boiled veg water.  When I was a kid we had a Sunday roast every.. well.. every Sunday, which included Brussel sprouts through the season.  These days people don't tend to bother with a full roast very often, but if there's one occasion which warrants it, it's Christmas.
 
2012-12-24 01:01:38 AM

markie_farkie: We were at a party earlier this year, and the host served Brussels Sprouts that had been oven-roasted after being drizzled in bacon grease, salt, pepper, and fresh garlic.  the bottoms were sliced flat so they stood upright.

The outside layers were crispy like parchment paper, and the insides had caramelized and were quite sweet and tender.

Definitely worth a try!


Sounds yumptious. For an easy version, just wash and roll them on a bake sheet covered in olive oil, coarse salt, and cracked pepper. Then bake till the outer layers just start to turn brown.

/my favorites are the babies, ≤3/4" across
//too big and they start to taste like golf balls

unlikely: If you get the really large Brussels Sprouts and break them up like lettuce, you can wilt them in butter and garlic and they come out fantastic.


And then add some parm. Nom nom nom!
