Shrimp (bacon in the original)
cooking oil, butter
lemon juice.

Fry the shrimp in the oil and/or butter. Cut the bigger sprouts in half; fry them in with the shrimp. When half-done, splash a bit of lemon juice on, then a few tablespoons of water and put the lid on quickly (to steam-finish them). Serve with a smile.

I love Brussels sprouts with cranberries and nuts.

Hell i just like fried/roasted Brussels sprouts. Just if you're going to boil them I'll be a state over.

I made some banana fosters French toast.

A stale baguette wich could really soak up the eggs made all the difference.

That said it was mostly an experiment to see if rum extract would work and surprisingly the answer was very well.

The french toast part:

1 stale baguette cut into 1" slices on the bias.
3 eggs
1/4 cup milk
Pinch of salt
Tsp vanilla
Butter for frying.

Whisk the eggs milk salt and vanilla together.
Soak the bread in the egg mixture.
Fry on both sides until browned.
Hold warm while making the topping.

Banana fosters topping
2 ripe bananas
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tbs butter
1/4 cup Booze of your chose (i used vodka with 1tbs of rum extract but rum or a sweet liquor of you like.)
Cut the banana into 1/2 discs.
Melt the butter over low heat. Add the brown sugar and stir till dissolved.
Add the bananas to the pan cook for a minute or 2 till the bananas are brown on one side.
Kill the heat.
Add the booze.
Carefully light the alcohol again carefully I'm not responsible if you burn your house down.
When flames go out turn heat back on and cook untill the thick sauce forms.

Top several slices of french toast with bananas fosters topping.

Serves 3 to 4 people.

Oh, 1" slices! I thought you were going to do a foot-long banana hot dog french toast...
Your version sounds tasty. I must try that.

Cornish pasties, made from scratch because even if I could find somewhere to buy them around here I don’t trust Californians not to bugger about with the recipe. They'd probably want to put avocado in, or something similarly ridiculous. :roll: So, I buy steak, spuds, swede, and onions, and just make it all happen myself. Everything else involved is a “buy a lot to use in everything” item.
