How to buy Brussels Sprouts
« on: December 20, 2017, 04:11:26 PM »
I just saw an article about this, stalk or no stalk.  My answer:  Don't buy them.

I like them just fine.  A cheese sauce over them is excellent.  I hear they are very healthy too.  What's there not to like?

Three things I always get at Golden Corral: meat loaf, fried okra, Brussels sprouts with cheese sauce.

You're going to cut the stalk off anyway so may as well save the extra work and buy balls.

My wife places them in a frying pay covered with a butter, oil and garlic mix.  15 minutes covered without stirring and they're done.  We shake grated Parmesan cheese over them so the cheese doesn't bury all of the other flavors

Word.  If you have to put cheese sauce on to eat them, they aren't very good anyway.  Like putting A1 on a fine steak.

or... Lightly spray them with olive oil, sprinkle with parmesan, lightly salt, place in the over at 400 and cook till some of the outter leaves begin to turn black.

Who said anything about having to put cheese sauce on them?

Not for me, doesn't taste very good.  Now the first 3 posted by n9531 I can go with.

The best way I've found to consume Brussel's Sprouts is to get someone or something else to eat them.  I guess it is good that someone will stomach them with enough additives to make them palatable.

I'd be willing to consume your Brussels sprouts for a nominal fee. How much are you willing to pay? (I won't even ask you to provide the cheese sauce.)

I won't even buy them and you expect me to pay you!!!   ;)  Ha.  I appreciate the offer, it is very kind of you to dispose of those things.  I would only buy them if there was nothing else to eat and I had been starving for some time!!!

Be careful what you post. God reads this forum, and if you should really mess up, you might end up eating nothing but Brussels sprouts for all eternity.

You're right of course.  I will eat a few here so I don't have to spend eternity eating them.
