An odd breakfast

Cube potatoes and start them cooking with a touch of oil. Then add some sliced onion. After a bit, add the brussel sprouts. I serve this along side an egg per person.

Brussels Sprouts with Pecans
These take just a brief turn in the pan--slicing the sprouts cuts down on their cooking time. The dish's sweet, buttery flavors mellow the bite of the Brussels sprouts.

Yield: 8 servings (serving size: about 2/3 cup)

2 teaspoons butter
1 cup chopped onion
4 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
8 cups halved and thinly sliced Brussels sprouts (about 1 1/2 pounds)
1/2 cup fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
8 teaspoons coarsely chopped pecans, toasted


Melt butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic; sauté 4 minutes or until lightly browned. Stir in Brussels sprouts; sauté 2 minutes. Add broth and sugar; cook 5 minutes or until liquid almost evaporates, stirring frequently. Stir in salt. Sprinkle with pecans.

No My windy issues arise with sausage/hot dogs, and too much fat/oil. I think my body has gotten used to a high veggie diet.

I am interested in this. I have, in the past, found uncooked cabbage-ey things very wind making and have therefore avoided them. Have you ever had this problem?

I've started using my brussels sprouts as sandwich greens. I just cut off the base off the sprout and end up with petals to use instead of lettuce or spinach in my sandwich or tortilla.

1lb firm sprouts with any outer, yellowing leaves removed
2 tblsp light cream cheese
nutmeg
salt and black pepper

Cut sprouts in half, steam or boil in minimum amount of boiling water with lid firmly on for about 3 or 4 mins until soft but not giving off that cabbagey smell

drain into bowl and add low fat cream cheese and seasonings and smash up. It should not be a puree but smashed sprouts and is great with sausages or gammon or roast chicken/turkey

1 1/2 pounds Brussels sprouts
3 tablespoons good olive oil
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Cut off the brown ends of the Brussels sprouts and pull off any yellow outer leaves. Mix them in a bowl with the olive oil, salt and pepper. Pour them on a sheet pan and roast for 35 to 40 minutes, until crisp on the outside and tender on the inside. Shake the pan from time to time to brown the sprouts evenly. Serve immediately.
