So, when I saw them appear in my produce market again this year I decided it was time to reintroduce my kids to them. This time I went with a recipe I found on Cooking Light, Brussels Sprouts with Pecans.
|From Family, Friends and Food|
The twist on this recipe was the addition of sugar which helped amp up the kid-friendly factor. I didn't find the sugar too overpowering at 1 1/2 tablespoons, it was just enough to add a touch of sweet. The combination of the softened Brussels sprouts and the crunchy pecans was nice and made me want to keep going back for more.
If you haven't tried Brussels sprouts since you were a kid, go ahead... try them again! Here are some more recipes that may entice you:
