Most delicious Brussel Sprouts

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
If you are a Brussel Sprout lover like my husband and I, then this is a must try recipe:

1 pound Brussels sprouts
Sour cream, enough to coat the batch
4 pieces cooked backed, cut to pieces
2 green onions, chopped

Boil Brussels for 8 - 10 minutes. Drain water, add sour cream, bacon, onions and serve!


You will never want Brussels any different way again.

Is that "4 pieces of cooked bacon, cut to pieces"?????????????

DH and I both detested brussel sprouts until on one particular visit to my husband’s family's home, dear SIL separated a boatload of sprouts, leaf by leaf, removing the bitter middle.  She then quickly sautéed them in Olive Oil and a second boatload of minced Garlic.  Some S&P at serving and she made believers out of us.

The middle is bitter?!?!? How far in to remove the bitter middle??

That is the technique my husband and I had preferred. We also soak the Brussel sprouts in ice water an hour before cooking, and it really helps for the bitterness.

As a lover of sprouts any way except over cooked and frozen are not very good. Most often I do roasted, shredded and braised or steamed as goto methods

… just the core, like taking the core out of cabbage of iceberg lettuce.  Call us crazy, but that's the only way DH and I will eat brussel sprouts.  crazy.gif

I'll try the sour cream tip. This year i cooked a lot of bechamel bacon & sprouts pies. Grated parm on top, gratin, done. Good with almost any veg: cauliflower, broccoli, etc.
