13 Ways to Make Brussels Sprouts More Delicious Than Ever

I hated Brussels sprouts as a kid. Despised them. Loathed them. You could beg and plead, offer me bribes but I would keep my mouth shut.

It wasn’t until I attended culinary school that I fell in love with them, caramelized green and golden, dripping with bacon and sweet, sweet cranberries.

We’ve got 13 things you can do to make Brussels sprouts taste better than ever.

1) Do: Add fat

Brussels sprouts are known for having a bitter flavor. Using a bit of fat either when cooking or just before serving can help remove some of that.

2) Do: Add salt

Make sure you salt Brussels sprouts at the beginning of the cooking process. And then go in with a good pinch of sea salt or kosher salt before serving.

3) Do: Add sweet

Why do people put sugar in their coffee? Because it cuts down the bitterness. Sweet flavors to put with sprouts are apples and dried cranberries.

4) Do: Add sour

To cut through the strong flavor of Brussels sprouts try adding lemon juice, a tangy Dijon mustard, a splash of dry white wine, cider vinegar or a drizzle of your favorite salad dressing.
