    We fight over them in our house! I get really funny looks when out shopping, as my 11 year old will beg me to buy some (as well as spinach), and we're all devastated when they're out of season! We like them boiled, steamed, stir-fried, roast - in fact, any way you can think of.

    Roasting them until they get kind of brown removes a lot of the bitterness and brings out the natural sugars and sort of caramelizes them. It's a very different experience than how I'd ever had them before.

    I agree roasting is the way to go. Brussel sprouts, parsnips, onion, carrots or sweet potatoes - toss with olive oil and whatever herbs you like and then roast to golden yummy perfection. Add a little crumbled bacon, and go nuts!

    That salad looks good too - gotta try it.

    I'm in the love 'em camp! I roast a big pan of Brussels sprouts cut in half along with a chopped up onion and a head of cauliflower. Roast in some bacon grease at 400f, and they are awesome. Not bitter, in fact, a bit sweet. I do 3 lbs of them with the onion and cauli, and they last the week.

    I love them, but my family hates me a few hours after I've eaten them...

    Roasted brussel sprouts are sooooooo good and sweet. My husband hates brussel sprouts but will eat the little buggers like they're candy when I roast them. Damn good stuff there.

    This recipe kinda covers up the flavor of the sprouts, but it is soooo good:

    I love Brussel sprouts! And they freeze well. I just steam a bunch and(like many others) eat em like popcorn. I also enjoy eating them leaf by leaf. (pretending I'm a giant eating teeny tiny heads of lettuce)
