How do you make yours? I hated them up until recently when I started craving them and now that is like my favorite vegetable and all I want to eat. I found some that I like that are frozen in a steaming bag with butter and stuff and you just put them in the microwave but I can't get them to turn out as good when I try and make them. Any suggestions?

I just steam them. I cut the bottom part off before steaming.

I cook bacon and the cook them in some of the bacon grease I then add I pack of sazon goya ( in the orange box ) And spinkle on some Goya all purpose seasoning ( with the green lid ) I add some prom cheese and shredded mexican cheese blend. Crumble the bacon on top. My kids love it.

I don't cook them....... My Grandfather and I used to sit and eat them straight out the bag uncooked :?

I put Cheese whiz and bacon on them...the cheese whiz melts into this really nice, creamy sauce, and if you add a bit of garlic and shredded cheese to it, it's really good!

I LOVE brussels sprouts. I craved them during all three of my pregnancies. I found that fresh steamed brussel sprouts were the best! I like them with some butter mixed up in them, but I chop them up first.

I used to hate them, i always wanted to like them I just couldn't do it. Then at Easter SOs aunt made them and they smelled and looked so good so I had some and I've been craving them and eating them like every day with supper since.

I ate them during my second pregnancy daily. Now I'm addicted to spinach lol. I know a lot of people like them with cheese on them. I don't personally.

I do this too. And, I like them raw on my sandwiches and bagels with cream cheese.

The peas that they make the same way are really good too. Lately its either been a bag of brussel sprouts or peas with supper since they are so easy and 1 bag is the perfect amount for SO and I.

I eat the whole bag to myself :oops: sometimes for lunch I'll just pop a bag in the microwave lol. So doesn't like brussel sprouts.. he likes the broccoli + cauliflower with cheese. I've never tried the peas, I've tried the corn though, and the broccoli with carrots
