Bubble and squeak would be better with mash and mushy peas rather than those dreaded bru.....brus....see, I cant even write the word
I have sprouts but could force one down to be polite.......
But cater...............musy peas...........I can't think what on earth could force me to take a mouthful of them
but the vegetables are not important.......Its the Turkey that counts................Mine is already bought and is over 21 lb............My mouth is watering at the thought of roast turkey
Oh dear Seren, bru.....spr....and turkey. Not a good combination in my book. We are having duck, pork and gammon. If it were up to me there would be none of them big green things at the table. But obviously it's not up to me !!
I love sprouts, one of my favourite vegetables.
I'm at my works christmas lunch today so no doubt there will be a high presence of those pesky, green, smelly things
I love 'em....I like them boiled so that they're mushy, I like them lightly steamed so they're crispy, I like them stir fried with lardons and marsala - there's no real wrong way to have them
Sprout ice cream?
I like them steamed Might throw in a few lardons too.
Carterusm - they shouldn't be BIG, they should be small and therefore more tender and delicately flavoured
I might have to get to Waitrose (at last! an excuse!) and try the red ones.
I like them on the slightly mushy side too GFB - like eating bullets otherwise
We will be having braised red cabbage at Crimbo too. Yum.
The other week my OH slow-cooked a beef stew and just chucked a few leftover sprouts into it. After 3 hours in with the meat they were soft to say the least but thay tasted fab.
He has been told to do the same again next time
I'll appoint myself brussels sprout monitor as usual - don't mind them boiled as long as they're not overdone! Will be perfect accompaniment to this year's three-bird roast: turkey, duck, guinea fowl. Mmmm! Then if there are any left-overs, BS bubble & squeak with bacon. I might suggest some smoked paprika, which I've been using a lot recently and goes very well with pork products generally. I love Christmas. It is all about food isn't it?!
If it wasn't I wouldn't take part Phil
Was given cold brussel sprouts as a meze in Cyprus last year?! Just WRONG!
Mmmm ... just polished off a big plate of bubble n squeak. With half a dozen fish fingers on the side. All slathered in tomato ketchup.
Edit: This means I've scoffed a kilo of sprouts in two days. You might not wish to be near me at this time.
