How do you cook your brussel sprouts? I recently was introduced to them - what can I say, I'd been deprived till now! - but I have no idea how to cook them!

Never cooked them but I LOVE them. I thinks hen I have had them it was steamed.

They are so good whichever way you cook them, but I particularly like them oven roasted.  That recipe (easy to follow, I promise!) gives you the option of making crunchy or soft.  Personally, I'd go for the crunchy, but they'd still be good soft as well.  Anyway, roasting brussels sprouts brings out their natural sweetness.  Also, in addition to the oil and salt that the recipe calls for, you can add other spices and other ingredients to enhance their flavor.  Here's a recipe for brussels sprouts roasted with bacon and maple syrup.  It's a bit of a more advanced recipe, but still doable.

My two sons loved them steamed, with melted cheese & mustard sauce.[ no recipe, just do it, mom.]

I just toss in olive oil and roast until very soft and some of the leaves are almost black, then I mash them with butter and salt

I like them really simple, peal the discolored bits off, slice in half, saute in a little olive oil for a few minutes, add a little salt, pepper, and balsalmic vinegar and voila!
