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

Panicked txt to significant other after seeing this post: "brussel sprouts!!"
3
I think that looks about right.

Thanks for spelling brussels sprouts correctly. Yum - brussels sprouts.
5
Brisseys sprouts
6
Hardly ever enough brussels sprouts (when done right).
7
I unfortunately cannot see images on slog at my work, however based on the question itself, I believe the correct answer is "No."
8
Needs even more than way more.

Delicious little cabbages! Roasted up with garlic! Steamed with cheese sauce! Chopped up cold w/viniagrette dressing!

Anyway you fix 'em: YUM.

Brussels sprouts smell like shit and taste only slightly better.
12
I have a fever, and the only cure is MOAR BRUSSELS SPROUTS.

@4,
Technically, you're supposed to capitalize "Brussels" since Brussels sprouts are named after the Belgian city.
14
little green balls of goodness...
15
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....
16
Cooked on medium low heat with butter, covered, ten minute each side, grated parmesan or gouda, nutmeg and salt sprinkled on top...dear god, yes.
17
i thought i hated them until a few weeks ago. now i think i love them.
18
@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.
19
With a crusty cheese topping.
20
@ 18, like roma tomatoes.
21
Please, just let them grow up to be cabbages.
22
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.

And a stick o' butter.

@22, Thanks, I'll have to watch some of those Vegan Black Metal shows.

@18,

Belgium will have your head for this outrage.
28
YOU MISPELLED BRUSSEL SPORTS DUMBASS
29
Brustle sporks?
30
Roasted with maple syrup and bacon.
31
The only correct way to prepare Brussels sprouts is to throw them away.
32
@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!
33
Busty spouts?
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...
35
@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.
36
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.
37
mmmm Brussels sprouts! Yummy!

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.
