Author Notes: I was a life long hater of brussel sprouts...they were always drenched in oil, butter or even (ugh) chicken fat. I found it hard to believe that these little gas bombs were suppose to be good for you! Then one day I decided to make them according to my rules. Quik...a minimum of ingredients and a sparkle to the flavor. - dymnyno
