The good news for the budget-conscious, as I need to be, is that whole loose brussels sprouts are easy to wash and shred. They really are great in salads. any egg dish. Soup. Now that you are eating them, I predict you will love every use of them. My favorite: cut in half and roast in the oven, with a drizzle of olive oil, and finish with salt.

Candy, I've definitely been seduced by the convenience of these shredded sprouts. In fact, I'd probably never have given Brussels sprouts a second chance if I hadn't stumbled on these in the market. I hope I'm working my way up to whole sprouts -- but it's going to take a while!

I never thought I'd see Brussels Sprouts on a Lydia Likes It.

Ted, no one is more surprised than I am.

I love this conversation! I can always use a chuckle.

I, too, used to hate Brussels sprouts, until I learned the trick of quartering them before cooking. Voila! No more bitter sprouts! Using a recipe from a friend, I saute them in equal parts olive oil and butter, with carrots quartered and sliced lengthwise, and a touch of garlic. It's one of my go-to recipes, a Christmas dinner favorite of my family.

Shaved? Sounds delightful.

Connie, I think you're on to something. The smaller the Brussels sprouts get, the more I like them! I will go from shaved, to quartered, to halved....!

I've looked and looked for these in Utah and haven't found a single store that has them. :(

Kalyn, I've found them at my regular grocery store (the "good" one), and also at Trader Joe's. Hope these sprouts make it to Utah soon!
