Are you still looking for Thanksgiving recipes? You’ve got about a week before you need to shop. Snap to it.
Without ever trying brussels sprouts as a kid, I was sure I hated them. From What’s Happening!! to Full House, brussels sprouts were the butt of every dinnertime joke, and at that point, I had no reason not to trust the Olsen twins.
I finally tried brussels sprouts several years ago at a friend’s dinner party, and I was schooled. As it turns out, my animosity towards the much maligned cruciferous veggie was just a big misunderstanding. When properly prepared (i.e. not overcooked), brussels sprouts are delightful. And adorable.
P.S. Even if you don’t like brussels sprouts, um, bacon!
