Mashed Brussels Sprouts
Never in my wildest dreams would I have thought about making Brussels Sprouts this way! “Debs Grotto”, from a FB group I post in, told me about how she makes this and everyone loves it. So of course I had to try it! Well Deb, everyone here loved it too including my 5 year old grandson! This is a very easy way to fix Brussels Sprouts and a delicious twist to eating them a different way.
Cut the end off and remove the outside layer
of the dry leaves on each of the Brussels Sprouts.
Steam the Brussels Sprouts
until completely soft.
Place the butter and garlic into
a microwave safe bowl.
Microwave until the butter melts.
Once the Brussels Sprout are soft,
place them into a large bowl.
Pour the butter over the top.
Salt and pepper to taste.
Using a mixer, beat the Brussels
Sprouts until no large pieces remain.
It will look like coleslaw.
Place into a serving bowl and serve.

Thank you so much!
You are welcome
I’ve actually thought about it… but I never knew what to do with them afterwards..
You can even make a soup out of them.
Cool!! I would never have thought about that…. I’m going to experiment!
What a great idea! We LOVE Brussels sprouts, so this would be a nice variation.
Thank you Judie it was a delicious change.
Everything tastes better with butter and garlic!
For sure Sheree!!!!
I’ve never thought of this, but I’m going to try it, it sounds wonderful
The lady that told me about it said her kids won’t eat Brussels Sprouts but they eat this! hahahaha
Looks good! Maybe my husband wont notice it is Brussel sprouts and like them too without the extra calories of cheese! LOL! Thank you for the recipe. Have a blessed day!
I like the way you think! lol Thank you and you’re welcome!
Never had Brussels sprouts.
Taste like little cabbages. I love them!
Now you’ve got me thinkin’! What about Cream of Brussel Sprout Soup. Obviously call it some other flash name… What’s the French name for Brussel Sprouts, better yet, FLEMISH name? Brussels Belgium?? They speak French, Flemish, German, and Dutch if my memory serves me. Find the language that the name sounds most appetizing in. Let me know when you come up with the recipe. I’d make it… And I LOVE Brussel sprouts anyway. 😊
You’re too late there already is a cream of Brussels Sprout soup…lol
Going to try this next week.
Awesome John, let me know how you like it.
Great idea! Afterall, they taste like intense cabbage and I love dark cabbage 😉
I hope you give them a try…..delicious!!! Thank you!
Interesting. We like Brussels sprouts and ate for dinner yesterday. I will try this. Thank you for sharing
You’re welcome! Enjoy this turned out really good.
Yum! That looks really good!
Thank you Lydia!
These look awesome– must try.
Thank you and enjoy they taste amazing!
I could understand sprouts but not getting to understand about Brussel.
That is the name given to them when they were cultivated in Belgium in the 16th century. We have called them Brussels Sprouts where I live always. The other thing I find interesting is that it is always Brussels, with an “s”, whether you are referring to one or many. Thanks for your comment!!!
Looks great and I love brussels sprouts!
Thank you let me know if you try them.
By gum, anything that makes Brussels sprouts more palatable is aces with me!
It is an entirely different taste Matt. When my husband said yum, I knew it was a hit!
Mmmmm yes! Looks delicious!
Thank you Jinger!
I dunno – I had to eat so many brussels sprouts as a kid, I have yet to develop a love affair with them. But they are good for you – I’ll keep working on that okay?
Oh Linda I am telling you with all the butter, garlic, salt & pepper then mashed it was a totally different taste. Even my husband loved it!
See, I only ever had them plain, just heated up like that, no sauce or anything on them – maybe I should change my tune Diane. 🙂
I don’t have a mixer or a chopper so it will take me a while to chop them up.
Not really, they are so soft just using a knife shouldn’t take too long. You may find it easier to chop them before steaming and then just add the butter, salt and pepper once they are done steaming. Thanks for you comment Stephen!
Like you, I never would have thought of preparing Brussels Sprouts this way, but it sounds very tasty.
I was shocked by how good it tasted. Thanks Sheryl!
I look forward to tying this!
It is really good Terese, enjoy!!!
I love brussel sprouts!!
You have to try this…so good!!!!
Now I must!
Thanks for sharing this wondeful recipe. I will soon try it then share my taste experience with you. I subscribed your’s blog through my new hotmail account. I hope you will soon visit & follow my blog too. Here is the link of my latest travel post about chennai’s two famous hotels. https://digitalshining.com/agoda-hotels-booking-chennai-travels/
Thank you Sumit! I tried your link but it doesn’t work for me.
Trying this for sure, I love Brussel Sprouts.
It was delicious!!!! Lots of butter didn’t hurt…lol
Now who would have thought… yum! I may make these today!
They are really, really, really good!
Got a bag in the ref…going to try this! Maybe hubs will like them after all!
I’m telling you, I was shocked how much mine did and he doesn’t care to eat them whole. Let me know what your hubby says.
They look so good!!
And real butter makes everything healthier and better.
Oh and like those vintage Tupperware salt and pepper shakers.
Well not sure if they are vintage but it was fun to see real Tupperware – seems like years ago they were paving the way for what we have now ((even tho we have mostly gone with glass now))
I have two sets of the Tupperware salt & pepper shakers. I had a set and a friend had a set (like new) she was selling at her garage sale and I snatched them up! I love them because they are large and keep the salt and pepper dry! Good eye…lol Thank you too!
Hang on to your sets because I wonder if they will be collectible (or if they already are)
Recently I took a photo of the Tupperware lunch box – in red/orange – that came out around 79 or 80/81 – wrap around handles – I almost bought it to have for memories but had to pass ….
Thanx Diane – can’t wait to try it – YUM!
Thank you, I couldn’t believe how delicious it turned out!
Wow! I would never had thought too 😊 but definitely is a must try 😋😉
I know! I had never heard of it until somebody told me how good it was…and you know I had to try it!
Whoa, now I’ve tried mashed cauliflower but never this. Looks so interesting! Maybe we’ll have to give it a go, too. Especially if your grandson even enjoyed it!
He really did!!! I hope you get the chance to try it. The butter really made this amazing but I’m thinking you don’t use much butter. If not it will be interesting to see what you add instead.
We use this fake butter that’s very close to the real thing so that’s what we’ll use 😀
