I've collected 10 Brussels sprouts recipes from 10 of my blogging friends who really do love Brussels sprouts.
You may notice that there are no Brussels sprouts recipes here on Everyday Southwest. Brussels sprouts are my arch nemesis, my Kryptonite, my pail filled with water that melts me at the thought of them. I have only eaten Brussels sprouts that I have liked one time in my entire life. They were prepared personally for me by the famous James Beard Award winning chef, Robert McGrath (the father of "American Western Cuisine" himself) as he stood only five feet away from me. Perhaps I loved the Brussels sprouts. Or, perhaps, I was dazzled by Mr. Cowboy Chef. I may never know for sure.
This time of year, I can't get away from them. Their little green faces are everywhere! In the grocery store, the farmers markets, at the fancy restaurants (and the not-so-fancy). Even my friends and faithful readers are filled with questions about how to cook them.
I've decided this year I'm going to end the madness and do a post on Brussels sprouts... with a little help from my friends, of course.
I have collected ten recipes from ten of my blogging friends. I know these ladies personally. I have share lunches with them, gone to baby showers with them, gotten lost in the Texas dessert with them and even shared a condo at a Utah ski resort with them. Once you cram seven women in a condo, you are friends for life. Anyway, I trust these ladies and their recipes enough to share them with you.
Since the recipe for Brussels sprouts cooked by Chef McGrath involves coring each individual Brussels sprout and carefully peeling each and every tiny leaf from each and every tiny sprout, I did not include it in this Thanksgiving round-up. It would require an entire staff of prep chefs to prepare and since I want you to still be my friend after the holidays, I will save that recipe for another day.
Although, if you have a relative you would like to keep busy...

Thanks for putting these together, I look forward to trying out some of these other recipes. I love guys!
Mmmmmm, sprouts! I love roasted sprouts and my favorite version is close to Stephanies -- roasted B sprouts with bacon, onions and tiny potatoes. Heavenly, even if your not overly fond of the little balls of lusciousness. Imagine my surprise when a niece requested the recipe for our latest at-home cooking class!!
Lately B sprout hash has graced our table (a la Joy the Baker's recipe) - I love it, the husband not so much.
I want to try every single one of these!! And thanks so much for including mine, friend! You should try it out - maybe you'd fall in love again!
I can't believe it's Brussels sprouts season again! Time flys, whether you are having fun or not! Thanks for the fabulous roundup - must try all!
Oh yes, I used to feel exactly the same way about Brussels sprouts. When boiled and plopped on a plate, Brussels sprouts make themselves hard to love. But when shredded and sauteed, or roasted, they are one of my favorite fall veggies. Thanks so much for including my recipe!
I have never liked brussels sprouts but after trying this, I have loved them! This looks like an amazing side for an awesome Sunday roast!
