The last two weeks: Brussels sprouts, gift guides, cookbook giveaways and EYBD Previews

Your eyes are not deceiving you. I am going to write about Brussels sprouts – the one vegetable that my 16-year-old son and I fight over at the table. We fight over who gets the last sprout. Every time I make them, my son and I half-heartedly attempt to get my husband (his father) to try them. We want Jim to love them like us but then we remember we will have to share with a third person if he is converted!

One of my favorite recipes is the recipe above from Jessica Merchant’s blog How Sweet Eats. Sometimes we crumble bacon or add chunks of crispy Kielbasa sausage (ala Crave Burgers with a teriyaki glaze). But as long as I get a nice crisp char on the sprouts and have salt, pepper, and olive oil, we’re good. We have 6,500 recipes in our EYB Library for Brussels sprouts (online recipes).

There are even a few cookbooks devoted to the sprout and only the sprout. Last month, Heather Thomas’ The Brussels Sprouts Cookbook was published in the UK. Another title is The Sprout Book: A Celebration of the Humble Brussels Sprout.

Are you a Brussels sprout fan? What is your favorite recipe or method to prepare them?
