Brussels sprouts are really like tiny cabbages. Therefore, if you enjoy eating cabbage as much as my family and I do, you will most likely love this side dish recipe.

Choosing the Best Brussels Sprouts for This Recipe

I like to find smaller sprouts as they are a bit more tender and sweeter than larger sprouts.

Often, if I am at a farmer’s market and see the larger sprouts, they often have discolored leaves or spots. This can mean a fungus is present or they are tough and overgrown.

Therefore, look for green firm small heads with tightly packed leaves. This will provide for the most tender and sweet sprout.

Trimming the Sprout

Look over each piece and trim off the stem so it is close to the head. Remove any leaves that look dried out. Cut in half or quarter the little gems.
