I’m a dump and hope kind of cook but you really can’t screw this up, you simply HAVE to try it. They are amazing.

BEST BRUSSELS EVER (don’t tell, it’s a secret)
rinse and quarter your sprouts and dump them all in a big bowl (see, dump and hope, like my mother)

melt about 3-4 tbsp of butter and pour over them, mix until coated

dump in a couple heaping spoons of mayo, mix until coated

pour in about 2 tbsp of lemon or lime juice, mix until coated

sprinkle in about 1/2 cup of the parmesan cheese that comes in a shaker (ya, I know), mix until coated

spread in a 9X13 baking dish and cook at 375

I don’t know how long, I just keep watching them and mixing them around in the pan every 10-15 min (maybe 45 min?)

take them out when you have a bunch of brown crispy ones that are so good you will burn your mouth trying to eat them

go make them…now…they are amazing

I really need to figure out a recipe for this…

Brussels are my absolute fave. I do Mark Bittman’s recipe for glazed Brussels sprouts. Delicious! I could eat pounds.

And then I usually throw some parm on top. YUM. I am going to try your leek and mushroom recipe… it sounds like heaven on a plate to me!

The ones from our local Whole Foods are terrific… and store-brand!

I can’t wait to have brussels from the grill! If only my grillmaster would get home from Afghanistan soon! I’ll suggest the salmon to him… I am (very sadly) allergic. But I do like my brussels with some lemon roasted chicken…. also pretty great!

(usually a good place to start is through the local university.) how completely bizarre! ours grow while i completely forget about them and neglect them. if you share some broccoli with us, i’ll share some brussels with you!

I am eager to make chard my friend. Mostly because avoiding it at restaurants (which I now do because I taste the swimming pool I manage to make of it) is getting tiresome.

Plus I LOVE lemon anything… so thank you for the recommendation! Fingers crossed!

Green beans are my favorite favorite, but brussels sprouts are definitely in the top 5. I make them a lot of different ways, but currently, I like slicing them thin, sauteeing them with some thinly sliced leeks, and cooking some wild rice with dried mushrooms to mix in with the sprouts. It’s just so complex and wonderful!

I give them a good sauté, not being afraid to get them nice and browned. When they’re almost done, I toss in some garlic. And then I eat them as fast as I can shovel them into my mouth!

They are now an absolute favorite. My way is sautéed with olive oil, salt, pepper, sliced onion, basalmic vinegar, a touch of maple syrup and crumbled blue cheese. It’s like I have died and gone to heaven!

But I love them!
Thanks for the tip re frozen ones, will have to check if you can buy them frozen here.
