Not everybody loves Brussels sprouts, which taste and look like sweet little cabbages, but I bet this recipe would change their mind. This came from Christmas With Paula Deen. I have not tried this recipe just posting for safe keeping.
Found this on a site called "skinny weight watchers recipes". I HATE brussel sprouts and LOVE this!! I've even gotten my kids and husband to eat brussel sprouts too! I make these at least 1-2 times per week!
I served these to a room full of Brussels Sprout haters…. they were shocked that the side dish they were raving about was actually a food they thought they disliked!
The majority of the preparation work comes in removing the core and pulling the Brussels sprout layers apart. This is well worth the effort, as the tender leaves cook quickly and evenly to a beautiful bright green color, lightly glazed with olive oil and bits of crisp pancetta.
This has become our favorite way to eat brussels sprouts. Some mods made on the Whole Foods recipe. I love the idea of steaming vegetables to get the pure taste coming through. After that, all you need is a dressing or sauce to make it into any style you want. We use an electric steamer to steam the brussels sprouts. And using the machine, it takes about 10-11 minutes of steaming for our taste.
While not everyone likes cooked carrots or brussels sprouts, this tasty dish is still a great recipe to take to a potluck or serve as a second or third vegetable dish when you have guests. It's particularly good with turkey.
From 'Recipes from the Root Cellar'. "This is a luxurious way of cooking Brussels sprouts, perhaps not for every day (or even every week), but the cream does have a wonderful way of taming the often unruly (read: sulfurous) flavor of Brussels sprouts. Don't underestimate the power of the salt and balsamic vinegar for bringing the flavors together; taste and adjust as needed." I think this side dish would be an appropriate addition to your Thanksgiving/Holiday menu!
