I’ve always thought these little veggies were called Brussel Sprouts. Little did I know they are actually called Brussels Sprouts, which makes sense since they originate from Brussels. These tiny veggies have people all over the world divided. It seems as if your either love them or you hate them….there is no middle ground. When I was a kid, my Dad hated Brussels Sprouts so that meant my Mom never made them for us. As I got older I learned to love them and they make a great addition to any meal. Hopefully this recipe will convert the skeptics or inspire someone to try something new. These mini cabbages make a great quick and easy side dish for your Easter dinner or a busy weeknight meal. This versatile side dish can be seasoned with your favorite spice and on the dinner table in no time.
