Here is a Brussel Sprout recipe that "sounds" good... I know! How can any Brussel Sprout recipe do anything for this much maligned little vegetable? But Jill assures me that she and Bill tried it and it was good. I have to admit that the ingredients sound intriguing and so I will have to try it.

Question: Is it Brussel or Brussels?

Crumb-Covered Sprouts
12 fresh Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved
2 Tbs. sesame seeds
1 Tsp. minced garlic
2 Tbs. olive oil
1 Tbs. butter
½ Cup soft bread crumbs
2 Tbs. real bacon bits
½ Cup shredded cheddar cheese
Salt and pepper to taste

Place Brussels sprouts in a steamer basket; place in a saucepan over 1 in. of water. Bring to a boil: cover and steam for 15-20 minutes or until crisp-tender. Meanwhile, in a large skillet over med. Heat, cook and stir the sesame seeds and garlic in oil and butter for 2-3 min. or until sesame seeds are lightly browned. Add the bread crumbs and bacon; cook and stir for 1-2 min. or until crumbs are golden brown. All the Brussels sprouts, cheese salt and pepper.

You do notice that you have to mask the brussel sprout taste with sesame, garlic, bacon and cheddar. But you are right, it sound pretty good. You could substitute cauliflower florets or other veggies.
