I don’t have any memories of eating Brussels sprouts when I was a kid because nobody ever made them in my house. I don’t think they were really a thing then. But as I have gotten older, they have become more popular and I have grown to really enjoy them. I’m pretty sure I was first introduced to them as a roasted or sautéed dish but since then I have seen Brussels sprouts prepared in many different variations.
