I had no idea American’s ate Brussel sprouts, because no one seems to like them, yet somehow they’re a tradition for Christmas dinner in the UK.
I’m sure this dish is lovely, just like your other recipes, but I had a very bad experience with sprouts as a kid and I can never eat them again
Sorry to hear that you had a bad experience with brussels sprouts. I like them because they are similar to cabbage. There are so many other ways to cook brussels sprouts; give them another try.
