Brussel Sprouts. Love them or hate them? You have to try them like this. I personally never understood why people would hate them so passionately, I think it’s such a great veggie and we eat them all the time in all different kind of ways. I love them steamed with just a bit of salt and pepper, garlic and olive oil. My hubby loves them steamed with some melted cheese on top, it is his favorite veggie. So we definitely like them in our house, but here is a way that even the doubters will like them. Add some bacon and Parmesan cheese and they are truly amazing. Some lemon zest on top brightens them up and adds another layer of flavor, if you are iffy on them, be sure to try this recipe.
