Louise, try frying some Itallian Seasoned Bread Crumbs in the Olive Oil...
til just browned (takes about 2-3 minutes, but you have to keep moving them with a spatula or they will burn)...
Maybe add a little crushed garlic in there too for an extra kick?
then sprinkle over the Sprouts...
A little Romano cheese on top... Gives the dish a little extra flavor and crunch... YUMMMMMM!

The toasted Bread Crumbs also go great over Broccoli, Cauliflower & String Beans!
You don't need much... maybe 4-5 tbsp toasted bread crumbs... just enough to coat...

Brian, I add breadcrumbs along with grated cheese, butter and a squeeze of lemon over broccoli and roast in a pan in the oven. It's really good. I'll have to try the breadcrumbs over the brussels sprouts. And to think I hated, hated brussels sprouts as a kid. So bitter!

I hated Sprouts til I was 30!!!
Now I can't get enough!

I think it was because all the sprouts I had up 'til then were BOILED to mush! and tasted like C&ap!

Yes that was it, boiled with butter and so bitter and mushy. Mom and Grandma use to cook asparagus the same way, hated them too but love them now either roasted or grilled.

OH Gosh... that old mush we grew up with... no wonder we all hated veggies!
Now I like to steam sprouts & asparagus...
with sprouts, about a minute into the steaming, open the top... to let out all the gasses... and then recover...
then they are sweet! and I like them a tad on the crunchy side! anything but that MUSH!

I can't think of any veggie I boil anymore!
I even steam turnips & fresh corn! never boil!
The only thing I boil now is pasta!
I even steam my lobsters & crabs! never boil!

I posted this one a couple of years ago. It still is Great!
Here's another recipe for sprouts. It gets rave reviews every time, even from those that claim not to like Brussels Sprouts at all.

Pan Roasted Brussels Sprouts

lb. sliced pancetta, diced
8 Large shallots quartered
2 lbs Brussels sprouts, quartered
C white wine vinegar
Salt and pepper to taste

In a large pot, fry the pancetta till almost crisp. Stir in the shallots and cook until golden. Add the Brussels Sprouts and cook, stirring occasionally for 12 minutes. Add vinegar and cook till almost evaporated. Add salt and pepper to taste and serve.

Leagle! I saved this recipe! It s excellent! one of my fav's! although I usually use an English Malt Vinegar in the recipe...
Only reason I use English Malt Vinegar is I always have that on hand...
I love it on french fries & home fries!
It's one staple I'm never without!

This one's good too and really easy!

Mom's Brussels Sprouts.

2 bags frozen Brussels Sprouts
8 oz button mushrooms, quartered
1 medium onion cut in big chunks
2 - 3 T good Italian salad dressing.
1 basket cherry tomatoes

Mix all together in a casserole and microwave till heated through, stirring a time or two.

Fro being so simple and quick it's surprisingly good. I used Trader Joe's Tuscan Dressing.

not a big fan of frozen sprouts... They turn to mush after freezing and then cooking... Probably why I hated them as a kid...
and they are available fresh around here, when in season locally, or in the supermarkets from California year round...
Corn, ocra & peas are about the only veggies I ever buy frozen...

Surprisingly these weren't mushy at all. I suppose you could do the recipe with fresh. Just need to pre-cook them a bit.
