I think every kid hated brussels sprouts. I was no different although I was not against cooking them. One year when my brother and I were kids - my mom thinks I was 11 or 12, we did an anniversary dinner for them at home. I cooked and my brother served. One of the things I made was brussels sprouts and my mom said she still remembers that dish! I wish I could remember the recipe but it was something French. This recipe is not French but delicious and a perfect way to mix up the humble sprout....
