I usually half or quarter them, and cook them in butter and salt/pepper.

I would love a new way to Iintegrate brussel sprouts into our meals. As they are so tasty, tasty.

What do you think?

I love to grill them. I just use a little olive oil, fresh ground salt and pepper and a little minced garlic. My favorite way is barely blackened!

Bacon!!!
I cook up a skillet of bacon, then after I take the bacon out, I put the brussels sprouts in the hot grease. Big ones I cut in half; small ones I leave whole. I get them nice and crispy on the outside. Use a strainer spoon to drain off the grease when you take them out of the skillet. Add salt and pepper, and if the family hasn't already eaten all the bacon, crumble some onto the brussels sprouts.

Toss your whole brussel sprouts in a little olive oil, season with pepper and bake them in a hot oven (400 degrees) for about 20-25 min. Yum, yum!

They're really good halved and fried in butter with cumin seed.
Add some garlic near the end, and a squeeze of lemon when they're done.
