Everybody loves brussel sprouts, hey wait a minute, that's me. I love them, and can't get enough of them, alas they don't go well with my blood thinners so I can't eat as many as I'd like.

From Rachael Ray to Cook this everyone tries to get the unsuspecting patron to eat these lovely garden gnomes. Yet these poor little sprouts often end up cast aside or tossed to the family dog.

So, take this recipe, change it up to make it your own and go out there and bring new life to these miniature cabbages.

Also, this is a photo from an online site until I can get a good picture of my own creation.
