I haven't posted any recipes for them yet, but a vegetable I'm really starting to like more than I ever did is brussel sprouts. I saw a recipe that looked very promising on Zen Foodism, one of the blogs I read reguarly, but I haven't tried it yet. I did try a recipe from Cooking Light for a pasta dish with brussel sprouts, but I gave it a thumbs down. I did take some leftover brussel sprouts from that recipe, put them in a plastic container, put a handful of cheese over and take it to school for lunch. At school I just heated it in the microwave for about 3 minutes, added salt and pepper, and it was delicious.
But here is the purpose for this post. I am seriously wondering which is the correct spelling, brussel sprouts or brussels sprouts. Since I talk about being a teacher, I don't like to make spelling or grammatical errors on my blog. Interestingly enough, when I searched I found it both ways. Even on Epicurious.com, certainly a very reputable source, I found a recipe where it was spelled one way in the title and one way in the recipe! Due to the lack of consensus I have decided I'm going to spell it the way I say it, without the extra *s*. If someone can prove to me that I'm wrong, I will change my ways.
Here's a little more brussel sprouts information in case you're interested. Notice that this is NOT brussels sprouts information.
