Not the pale, soggy, boiled sprouts your mom used to try to force you to eat. It is a new era for brussels sprouts and, although they seem to be on every new restaurants' menu, these 5 super simple brussels sprout recipes you can make at home.

1. Caramelized Brussels Sprouts with Pancetta

Take your brussels sprout to a whole new-insanely-delicious-level by simply adding pancetta.

2. Sautéed Brussels Sprout Slaw with Sweet Peppers

Thinly slicing brussels sprouts allows them to cook faster. And faster is better.

3. Steamed Brussels Sprouts and Red Grapes

Red grapes add a bold color and slight sweetness that compliment the steamed brussels.

4. Brussels Sprouts with Lemon and Thyme

Simple trick: use your food processor fitted with the slicing blade to do all the slicing for you. Brilliant.
