This is the ONLY way I can get the rest of my household to eat brussels sprouts (I think I am the ONLY one who loves these things). ;) Great for a quick work night side dish - easy and healthy too. Sometimes I add Johnny's Salad Elegance, but usually the straight-forward simple recipe does it best on this one for the kids.

Look for dry-to-medium sherry sold with other fortified wines in your wine or liquor store. This is the only way the residents here at the home will even try the vegetable -- I liked it very much. However, after tasting it I thought it needed something -- to begin with added nutmeg and then a crushed red pepper flakes, for that extra zing.
So many people think they don't like brussels sprouts - it's sad, because they're such a wonderfully tasty vegetable! I figure they must have had them prepared badly when they were younger, because everybody I fix them for change their minds about them. My latest conquest was my husband, who thought he didn't like them, either. He has since changed his mind, of course.
