Very simple but delicious way to serve Brussels sprouts. If you have time, you may want to make your own Italian dressing; if not, the bottled kind works just fine. We like them as a side dish or even mixed into a tossed salad.

I like to roast the brussel sprouts instead of steam them (toss them with a little EVOO, salt/fresh ground pepper) for 25 minutes, cool and toss them with the italian dressing/hot sauce. This is also tasty when you toss in a little finely grated parmesan cheese. Read More

This is indeed very easy!! But it isn't outstanding! I might suggest trying a different marinade such as Greek Caesar. Also go heavy with the hot sauce you can't really taste it if you follow the recipe. Read More

Really good simple way to prepare Brussels sprouts I have always microwaved my sprouts so that is how I cooked them. I only added enough salad dressing to coat the sprouts and I found that was enough. This is how I will be preparing Brussels sprouts from now on. Read More

I started boiling water when I saw the review to roast the sprouts...so I decided to roast them with a bit of EVOO and S&P before adding the dressing. That sounded like a more robust flavoring vs boiling out all the lovely texture, and we love Brussels Sprouts! I added extra hot sauce and maybe only 4 oz dressing before letting it rest in the fridge. I double checked the bag of sprouts to make sure it was a pound....because the ammount of dressing called for would be over-kill for us. Cherry tomatoes, fresh Parmesan, green onion, seasoned croutons, balsamic reduction, blue cheese, toasted almonds....so many toppings to choose from to make this special for any main dish! Read More
