Another great way to eat the humble "baby cabbages"! I found this on a Walmart card in the grocery section.

Changed quite a bit about this, but am posting here to remember it, as this where the idea came from. First, cooked 2 slices bacon; sauteed most of an onion in the drippings, and then added and sauteed the prepared sprouts (cut off the ends and cut them in quarters). Mixed 1/4 cup maple syrup with the 4 tsp balsamic vinegar and poured over the sprout mixture in the pan and heated and served. Quite yummy.
- 4 cups fresh Brussels sprouts
- 4 teaspoons sherry wine vinegar
- 1 tablespoon mustard (deli style, spicy, yellow-your favorite)
- 1⁄4 cup maple syrup
- 1⁄2 cup walnut oil
- 1⁄2 teaspoon grated fresh nutmeg
- 3⁄4 cup walnuts, toasted and finely chopped (optional)
Directions See How It's Made
- Wash and cut an X into the bottom of all the Brussels sprouts.
- Fill a large saucepan 1/4 full of water. Bring to boiling. Steam sprouts in a steamer basket until tender, but still firm, about 5-8 minutes.
- For the vinaigrette:.
- In a small bowl whisk vinegar, mustard, maple syrup, walnut oil, nutmeg and salt and pepper together. Taste and adjust as necessary. Set aside.
- Drain the warm Brussels sprouts and place in a serving bowl. Toss with the vinaigrette.
- Serve garnished with the toasted chopped walnuts. You don't have to toast the walnuts if you don't want to :).
