Shit! I need to change my vote. I checked "way more", but just "more" is enough. Dammit!

Hardly ever enough brussels sprouts (when done right).

I unfortunately cannot see images on slog at my work, however based on the question itself, I believe the correct answer is "No."

@4,
Technically, you're supposed to capitalize "Brussels" since Brussels sprouts are named after the Belgian city.

I had some last night, roasted in a cast iron skillet I had previously cooked bacon in. Sprinkled some soy sauce, cracked some pepper.

OMG delicious....

@13: We use Merriam-Webster's dictionary here, which doesn't capitalize it. (They note that it is "often capitalized," though.) Sir Brissey is correct.

Also, the vegan black metal chef's recipe for brussels sprouts is great (starts @ 4:25):

Go to Blue Glass in Ballard and get the Fried Brussels Sprouts w/ siracha and honey. Dear lords & ladies that dish is heavenly. I'm biased in that I eat all the brussels sprouts all the time.

Mmmmmm Brussels sprouts. Two fabulous recipes: 1) roasted with garlic and 2) mysteriously shredded and combined with kale to make the world's most nutritious Caesar salad.

The only correct way to prepare Brussels sprouts is to throw them away.

@17

I had them for the first time in the freshman dorms a long time ago and hated them. Then at a Thanksgiving dinner about five or six years ago, someone roasted a panful and I've loved them since. So needs way, way more.

@31

Cooked and into my mouth!

Jaymz 34
Based on the crappy version I was forced to ingest growing up I agee with @31 and run screaming from those green fart bombs. But maybe these recipes will cause me to try them again. Now if you can just do the same with liver...

@34, easy. Just one: pan fried chicken livers plus onions and green peppers with butter. Chopped livers should be added last and cooked until nicely browned. Add chopped parsley before serving.

I was forced to eat them a few times as a child. Boiled, smelly, and squishy. I swallowed them whole followed by a big gulp of milk. I knew then that i would never, ever tolerate Brussels sprouts.

My wife, a few years ago, baked them with Parmesan cheese and olive oil. She asked me to try them even though I insisted I'd hate them. I COULD NOT HAVE BEEN MORE WRONG. I fucking love Brussels sprouts.

Prepare to have your mind blown!

Did you know that brussels sprouts, cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, Romanesco, kale, collard greens, and kohlrabi are all examples of the same species of plant?

That's right, they're all unique cultivars of Brassica oleracea. And as members of the Brassicaceae family they are all incredibly healthy cruciferous vegetables.

So good.

Eat your GBOMBS! This is Dr. Joel Fuhrman's acronym for the healthiest foods that should be the staples of our diet -- (g)reens, (o)nion family, (m)ushrooms, (b)erries, (b)eans, and (s)eeds. (You've most likely seen Dr. Fuhrman in one of his many specials on PBS.)
