Another recipe, roast them in an oven dish. Before roasting put some olive oil on them (or butter) some garlic, salt and crushed pecans. The pecans go really well with brussel sprouts.
Similar when I was served by my (former) MIL. I said "This is the nicest gift you've ever given me."Many years ago I was celebrating my birthday. Came a knock on the door and out of habit I looked through the peep hole before opening the door. Two men in suits. I opened up and they presented me with the final papers on my divorce. I thanked them very much, shook hands with both of them, and told them it was the best birthday present I had gotten all day!
