  1. Love the suggestions, but just can’t get better than steamed but not overdone, served warm and pop them straight into my mouth

  2. I’m with Augene, but they are also good cooked al dente and then fried with bacon and garlic. Even spout haters have loved them like this!

  3. Brussels in Tumeric
    Prep spouts by removing outer leaves and trimming the bottom. Finely slice the spouts. Heat frying pan add a little oil and butter and add a crushed clove of garlic and Tumeric on a low heat. After a minute add the spouts and cook through on a medium heat, adding walnuts near the end of cooking for an added flavour and texture.

  4. These replies only arrived today in my inbox today!… I’m thinking, maybe we can start a I love Brussel Sprouts fan club! 🙂 Hopefully, we don’t have to wait until next Christmas…
