Best Brussels Sprouts Recipes

We’re beyond obsessed with brussels sprouts. But not everyone is always on-board with us and we know that. We’ll get some random comments on blog posts or Facebook posts about how folks truly dislike them. It’s totally true that there’s folks who don’t like these veggies. Some might have had childhood torture where they were forced to eat mushy, boiled and stinky orbs of green-guck brussels. But hopefully those days are gone because the culinary world of brussels keeps getting better! For the holidays and quite frankly, for everyday, there’s an occasion for this side dish on the dinner table. There’s so many fabulous ways to prepare these little green goddess gems that there’s just not enough time to eat them all! Over the years we’ve developed so many Brussels recipes and eaten so many delicious brussels dishes that we’re always hoping theres a recipe here that will transform haters into lovers.

It’s hard not to find a bushel of them somewhere in our fridge during this time of year. Lucky enough to be living in a area that nurtures fruits and vegetables year round, the rest of the year we’ll score a bag every few weeks at the farmers markets.
