    ​You do not need big Brussels Sprouts to do this,the leaves are from the plant itself.My first year in a tiny garden trying to grow them,searching for info on raising them.I found out they need to be trimmed,then I find a recipe for Brussels Sprouts sauteed with Garlic and Onions,Wheels start turning I want them stuffed so lets get it going.

    Plants I took a dozen leaves


    Clean with hot water


    Make your meat mixture




    then blanch the leaves  to make them pliable



    Roll them like Pigs in a Blanket


    use a tooth pick to hold it together


    Cook for 20 minutes or so


    These are tasty


    add a little extra sauce and dig in


    Thanks for looking

    The only thing I would change is, the amount of filling I think it was to much.Will be trying these again in a few weeks.

    I was pleasantly surprised myself,trimmed the plants leaving enough leaves on top,to make some more before harvesting.Thanks for the point I appreciate it

    I can just see it right now - stuffed Brussels sprout leaves will be the hottest new menu trend. Too bad you can't patent that idea

    Great use of the plant. Looked very tasty

    I can now laugh at myself. When I first read the thread topic, I though Richie was talking about the Brussel sprout and the little leaves off the little heads. I have had those leaves fried but could not imagine some one with enough patience to stuff those little bity leaves and pounced on the thread to learn........... Obviously my synaptic response was a bit slow that day!

    <Chuckles> Stuffing those little bitty leaves with a grain of rice and a granule of finely ground burger. LOL  
     
  18. At first I was thinking like Foam   How in the He- double hockey sticks do to roll up those tiny leaves ??

    Looks mighty good to me   [​IMG]

    Those look really good Richie.  I'm like Foam and Gary--I thought you were rolling the tiny leave from the sprout itself.  LOL.

    Great idea!!!!!!!!!!!!!
