I don't like brussels sprouts. I've even tried them steamed, which usually does great things for veggies. To me, they taste like dirt.
My husband LOVES them. He goes on and on about how his mom use to make them for him growing up and how he devoured them.
What kind of weird kid eats brussels sprouts?
Well, after making this version (http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/paula-deen/melissas-brussels-sprouts-recipe/index.html) my kids are weird too.
I have always subscribed to the "bacon makes everything better" theory, and am a recent convert to the "butter makes everything better" concept - thanks to Paula. This recipe calls for bacon AND butter. After you drop those little sprouts in butter and bacon, they taste mighty fine.
Mighty, mighty fine.
I always have left over veggies when we make them. Not this time. I think I saw hubby's eyes roll in the back of his head one time . .
