Ok, if you have tried to make a person who does not like Brussels sprouts into a Brussels sprouts eater to no avail, this may be the final attempt.  And honestly, if after this, the answer is still “nah,” than I think you have done your best and should just called it a day, and find a great cauliflower recipe for you all to share.

In the immortal words of Robin Thicke, you know you want it.

I’m sure I have mentioned her or there or everywhere that Brussels sprouts have mixed reviews in my house.  The slightly annoying part is that the mixed results keep shifting from one person to the next, without much consistency or rhyme or reason.  Actually to be more accurate, my  two boys never seem to like them at the same time, but they take turns being the picky one.

The big consistency is that Gary doesn’t like them.  And shares this opinion loudly at the table, so whichever boy was kind of digging the Brussels sprouts, starts to doubt.

The one Brussels sprouts recipe every gets behind is this one: Brussels Sprouts, Apple, and Pomegranate Slaw Salad.

And then here are a bunch more, all of which I stand behind 100%, an the boys stand behind about 50% each, and Gary does not stand behind at all.

 

Man, I apparently love Brussels sprouts a lot.  Who knew?

4. Place the Brussels sprouts, cut/flat down down in the pan in a single layer. The pan should make the bacon sizzle. Let the bacon-wrapped Brussels sprouts cook for 2 minutes, then transfer the pan to the preheated oven. Roast for 25 to 30minutes, until the bacon is cooked and mostly crisped, and the Brussels sprouts are fairly tender.

      I would do put them back in a heavy skillet in a preheated 450°F oven for 5 or so minutes until hot and the bacon crisps up a little again.
