Fast forward twenty something years and Brussels Sprouts have become one of my favorite things! I'm kind of glad I said no that day because I'm pretty sure Mom would have boiled them and I would have hated them and sworn them off forever!
Instead, the world wide web, as it has introduced me to a lot of things, (Some good. Some bad.) introduced me to Brussels Sprouts. Washed. Cut in half. Seasoned with olive oil and a good sprinkling of salt and pepper. Then, roasted in the oven at 400 degrees until they are just beginning to brown. Their bitterness is gone at this point and they almost melt in your mouth.
Is there anything you thought you'd never eat, much less love, but have since changed your mind?
