I admit I hated them as a kid too. I was at deer camp a few years ago and one of my uncles brought a bunch he had from the farmers market. Knowing my culinary aptitude, he tossed the bag at me and said "see what you can do with these" This being a hunting camp, the pressure was on. I couldn't make some fancy dish, so I tried to keep it simple and came up with this. You can use any smoked sausage you like, I prefer a Portuguese linguisa, but you can use kielbasa, bacon or ham as well. You can omit the crushed red pepper if you don't like a bit of heat. Can be served as a side dish or a main course. This is the only way to eat brussel sprouts IMO.
