Recipe Request: Brussels Sprouts

A couple of months ago I had a divine meal at our favorite French restaurant that included a side of brussels sprouts in a yummy, slightly fruity glaze.  Since then, I’ve been intrigued with finding good brussels sprouts recipes.  I don’t have any bad childhood memory baggage associated with them, like I know a lot of people do.  Plus, I think they’re kind of cute.  Wee little cabbages.

Last night I tried a recipe for Balsamic Glazed Brussels Sprouts.  What could be better, right?  Jason and I summed them up with a big, “Meh.”  They weren’t awful, but I don’t feel the need to ever make them again.

So does anyone have a good brussels sprouts recipe?

(I’m also posting this on my personal blog, in case you feel like you’re reading the same thing again.  You are.)

    Well – I have a lazy recipe for brussels sprouts – I split them, steam them until not quite cooked through. I then saute them in olive oil and garlic. My son, who is an excellent cook, swears that you can cook anything in olive oil and garlic and it will be delicious – I think he might be right!

    BTW – I have always been a huge fan of them, probably because of the “cute little cabbages” effect. Tony, however, won’t go near them. Hence, they are relegated to holidays when I have 8 other vegetables available.

    I’ve actually never tried brussels sprouts (in fact, until I just noticed your spelling, I thought it was brussel sprouts–hmm), so I’ll join in the request for a good recipe out there!
