I've only occasionally tried boiled sprouts, and find that a lot of the flavour goes.

I like to cut them in half and very lightly steam them.

Then I use a butter sauce that is melted butter, dill, Dijon mustard and lemon juice.

They are just soooo good that way.

We've discovered roasting - my sister & I don't like Brussel sprouts, but the adult males in our family do (father, husband, brother-in-law) so they're a regular side dish at Thanksgiving, and when we roasted them the last 2 years it was a big hit! (Just google for recipes - that's what I do.)

we like them roasted too but I think the butter, dill, dijon and lemon would be great on them roasted! Thanks!!

My favorite way to cook Brussels Sprouts is to cut them in half and saute them in olive oil and garlic.

I lightly steam them and then saute in a little oil with onions, Dijon mustard, mild curry to taste, salt and pepper, McCormick's non salt Lemon-Garlic seasoning and the addition of some milk or heavy cream till it thickens. My husband loves this new recipe! (so do I) I also love them sauteed just in olive oil and garlic as above plus the salt, pepper and McCormick's.

We too love the Sprouts, I steam them and then put browned butter with almounds over them. Yum.
Also roast them, in olive oil, salt and pepper and when done, again use browned butter with almounds over them.

Wow, thanks. Where else but Dave's could I find so many other sprouts fans, and get some great new recipes too.

Got to try the roasting style, and some of the other sauces too.
