After re-hydrating the sprouts, consider baking them like this super cheesy flan!
Try Frying Brussels Sprouts in a Pan with Ham!
I know many folk turn their noses up at Brussels sprouts -- Yes, I know they are quite a pungent bitter vegetable, but you can make them taste a little sweeter by frying 'em up in a pan with slices of sweet country ham.
Gordon Ramsay also had a great recipe for sprouts for Christmas: watch the video below!
