40 Days of Awesome: Day 37

Brussel Sprouts

Oh, they are so awesome! Really. If you don’t like them, fine. You know what though, how have you had them? Boiled until they are a soggy, stinky mess? Highly probable, and if that’s the case you OWE it to yourself to give them another go, cooking them simply and deliciously. Since Day 37 is a Tuesday, which is also designated here at The Smorgasbord as Recipe Tuesday, here’s how to make the brussel sprouts awesome for your holiday table (and beyond):

Wash the sprouts, taking off some of the external leaves

Cut a cross at the bottom of the sprout

Now, either steam them for 7-9 minutes or pop them in a microwaveable dish with a little water and microwave for 5 minutes.

When done, toss with a little butter and for a festive twist add some grated nutmeg.

You could also toss them in the pan with some pancetta and maple syrup if you like. It’ll add some richness and sweetness.
