Ok, ok, give me a chance to explain.

I know, you are going to skip this recipe right? You HATE Brussel sprouts you say? Well…can you give these a chance? I might just change your mind! Brussel sprouts get a bad rap, I realize this. My guess is though, that they just haven’t been prepared properly before now. This recipe is a perfect mix of fresh and flavorful.

These Brussel sprouts changed me.  A few years back, I gave them a chance, and I never turned back. I love them now! They are a great addition to your Thanksgiving table and you might even change a few Brussel sprouts hating minds as well.
