Brussels sprouts: Love ’em or hate ’em, there is no in-between. At least, that’s how it seems. Every time I mention them, I’m met with cries of disgust. And yet they’re one of the most nutritious vegetables out there. Isn’t that always how it goes? The better something is for you, the less appetizing it is.
Well, after many years of force-feeding myself Brussels sprouts (and having to eat my husband’s servings, too, because he wouldn’t touch them), I’ve mastered all the ways to make them palatable to my household. Trick number one? Always include bacon. Everything is more appealing with bacon in it.
Trick number two is to add tart – not bitter – flavors like lemon, cranberries, or orange that will draw some of the attention away from the flavor of Brussels sprouts. (Trick number three is to go in the opposite direction and include sweets like honey, raisins, or maple syrup, but that’s not the direction I went in this recipe.) This is one of just a couple of Brussels sprouts recipes that have become staples for me and which I actually look forward to eating. I hope you enjoy it, too!
