    I will admit it. I used to be afraid of Brussels sprouts too. (Lucky for me, my childhood dog liked them. He was always willing to take one for the team!) But to be honest, I don’t really remember even trying them, it was just the stigma.

    For kids and some adults, they are simply a struggle. They are green, they have a strong, slightly bitter flavor, and most people just steam the heck out of them. Yuck!

    But once I found out how to prepare them to really let their deliciousness shine through, my opinion on Brussels sprouts was changed forever!

    It wasn’t until I was in my mid 20’s that I really started to acquire a taste for Brussels sprouts. I saw them on the menu at a steakhouse and I decided to be adventurous and give them a try. Wasn’t I just living on the edge?!

    Those particular Brussels sprouts were cooked with bacon. The salty sweetness of the bacon definitely cut down the bitterness and I instantly fell in love! I liked them so much that I made my own Brussels Sprouts with Bacon recipe, too.

    It was then and there that I realized it was all about coaxing the flavor out of these tiny little cabbage-like veggies.

    The key to this easy side dish is to mix the sweet flavors of maple syrup and cinnamon to cut the slightly bitter taste of the Brussels sprouts. The flavor combination is incredible! Also, the soft texture of the butternut squash as well as it’s own sweetness pairs nicely with the crunchy Brussels sprouts.

    The sky is the limit when it comes to cooking Brussels sprouts. You can oven-roast, bake, grill, or my personal favorite, sauteing them in a cast-iron skillet. You can even shave them and add them raw to a salad with the right elements. They truly are versatile.

    Don’t let Brussels sprouts intimidate you! Be open-minded and give them a go. There are so many options and you will be surprised at how fast and easy they are to prepare, and more importantly, how much you enjoy them!
