Brussel Sprouts Recipe

Sharing is caring!

What are THOSE?!?

This was the first comment that came out as I served lunch today to my two little guys…and even my one big guy (my husband).  I don’t win mother-of-the-year when it comes to serving nutritional veggies at meal times….because THOSE were Brussel sprouts.

A great friend of mine convinced me that I could serve these little nutritional nuggets, and even earn approval from my family, using her recipe.  So, in hopes that all families will be able to serve Brussel sprouts in the future, here is the VERY simple recipe:

the ingredients for brussel sprouts

Brussel Sprouts Recipe Ingredients:

  • 1.5 pounds Brussel Sprouts (3 bags in the fresh produce section)
  • ½ Sweet Onion chopped (I keep a few small containers in my freezer precut and ready to go)
  • 1 Bag of Oscar Mayer Bacon Fully-Cooked Bacon Bits (genius invention!)
  • Olive Oil to coat
  • Salt & Pepper to taste

The Verdict

After a bit of hesitation, and a tad of an ultimatum, all three boys tried them.  My oldest was not very fond of the smell, but after trying them, he commented, “oh yeah, I like them, Mom, they’re excellent!”  Another recipe to add to my repertoire!!

I read the topic and my belly instantly felt sick, yes I am one of thooooose people. I will eat and try about anything but those are one of my least favorite. However I have never tried them like this. I might have to talk myself into it and then talk my family into it. LOL

I did not make brussel sprouts for my daughters because I detested them as a kid. I suppose adding something - anything - to them and baking instead of boiling them in nothing but water until they are VERY soft would make one want to try and even like them!!!! Sounds very similar to a recipe I have using shredded or wedges of cabbage. I will try this.
