Haggis is Yummy.

It's no different than eating a hot dog, if you knew what you went into one of those.....

Anyhow during one of my many trips to Korea my host had me try hong-oh, it's rude to turn stuff down when a company big shot insists you try it, it was nasty as hell and couldn't get the taste out of my mouth for hours. Barely made it through one bite without throwing up. Declined the rest, but that's ok, in their eyes you did good and didn't insult them by trying it.

It's basically fermented fish, like eating a piece of cartilage soaked in ammonia for a few years. Nasty as hell.

I just don't get sushi. I've tried it numerous times due to people telling me the problem was I "didn't get good  sushi, this is the good stuff" and still, blech.

Way overrated.  The way it was built-up I was expecting so much more, it was a fine restaurant as well.

I still can't down these damn things without gagging, no matter what they're coated in...truly vile!

Buy them fresh.  Cut them in half, toss with olive oil, salt and pepper.  Bake them at 375 unti the edges start to get black and the outer layers are crisp.  About 40 minutes.

Trust me, it's not even the same vegetable.

Even better with bacon fat instead of olive oil :lol:
It was my duty to cook them a few years ago for a family gathering. I looked up a recipe that started with rendering a few slices of bacon, then searing the sprouts in the fat and then baking. After done baking, sprinkle with the bacon bits from the earlier cooked bacon. I have to make them every year now. I still don't like them!

Roasting Brussel sprouts turned my wife into an avowed Sprout fan. Up till then she had always hated them.

Roasting veggies in general brings out the best. Turnips, Squash, Parsnips, Beets, Cauliflower, Carrots....all yummy when roasted.

You know me, always trying to keep it healthy.  Using bacon as you described would make some incredible sprouts.

I agree.  I bake a great many of my veggies.  Baked or grilled beats steamed or boiled any day.

I have a similar recipe, except I wrap each sprout in bacon, pan sear, then bake.  After 35 minutes, remove from oven, I unwrap each sprout, and discard them.  Then I eat the bacon.

Roundy's (Midwestern brand) macaroni and cheese.   25 cents a box.   Tastes like paste.
