    They're from the frozen aisle - I can never get them to taste like fresh stuff. It's that easy "make your lunch" in the morning --- reach into freezer and pull out a bag of frozen vegetables ....

    Frozen game hens are best for home defense. Fits perfectly in the hand, and is a good size to knock someone out cold.

    Tell them to come back in several hours. That'll teach 'em .

    As to recipes-
    1. Parboil whole sprouts for a minute or two, then add to a frypan in which you've sauteed onions and bacon (or fakon, if you're veggie). Add fresh-ground black pepper (and whole cashews or pecans, if you're feeling adventurous) and saute till the sprouts caramelize, then deglaze with a splash of balsamic vinegar. Add just a bit of dark brown sugar and cook until everything thickens up a bit, then serve.

    2. Toss whole, trimmed sprouts with light olive oil (EV oil will smoke) and Kosher salt and fresh-ground black pepper. Roast in a single layer at 400F for about 30mins, stirring frequently to get a nice caramelization all over.

    Either of these goes nicely with a bulgur wheat pilaf or other hearty grain dish.

    I love brussel sprouts!! My absolute favourite veggie. Sauteed in olive and garlic is very happy. But I like them best simmered until just cooked. Heaven! No one else around here agrees so I get them all to myself - hehehehehehe.

    I Brussel Sprouts!

    I like them lightly boiled with lemon juice in the water. Sautéed with olive oil and garlic sounds extra good.
