Upon further reflection, I decided that to turn the "Max Special" pizza into the "Ratsky Special,"that would ensure mey attendance, all of the following would be required additions: mushrooms, roasted red bell peppers, and anchovies.  I am of the opinion that any recipe is improved by these additions (excpet for sweets and cakes, neither of which are on my "favorites" list). BTW, I DID have Brussels Sprouts with my lunch today!

I realized that weekend is when you'll be in England.  I'll have to check the times, as I rarely stir from my bed on the weekends before 11ish.  It's only a few miles from where I live, though.  If only they would serve that Brussels Sprouts, bacon, etc. pizza along with the beer for breakfast (to make a truly balanced meal), I would absolutely go!

@mhrackin: The 12th annual Chomp & Stomp festival includes a 5k followed with beer for breakfast, four music bluegrass music stages, a chili competition and tasting, plus brussels sprout bobbing.

OMG -- it sounds like a party created just for me LOL

So, will you be attending? Even if you decide not to do the 5K, you should still go down to take pictures to send to me!!!

Just came across this one (also AJC.com):

 

BRUSSELS SPROUTS, BACON AND CHEESE PIZZA

1/2 lb. Brussels sprouts

1 lb. bakery pizza dough, at room temperature

Cooking spray

2 Tbsp. olive oil, divided

1 (8-oz.) package shredded Italian three-cheese blend, divided

1 lemon

8 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled

1/2 tsp. kosher salt

1/4 tsp. freshly ground pepper

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Cut Brussels sprouts in half and then cut into shreds.

Roll dough into a 12-inch circle on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Brush dough with 1 Tbsp oil. Sprinkle with 1 1/2 cups cheese, leaving a 1/2-inch border.

Grate zest from lemon to equal 2 tsp. Cut lemon in half; squeeze juice from lemon into a large bowl to equal 1 Tbsp. Add lemon zest, Brussels sprouts, bacon, next 2 ingredients and remaining 1 Tbsp oil; toss well. Sprinkle Brussels sprouts mixture over pizza. Top with remaining 1/2 cup cheese.

Bake at 450 degrees for 15 minutes or until crust is golden, cheese is bubbly, and edges of sprouts are browned. Serves 4.

Here's another activity associated with Brussels Sprouts that you may want to atttend:

"Chomp & Stomp. The 12th annual Chomp & Stomp festival includes a 5k followed with beer for breakfast, four music bluegrass music stages, a chili competition and tasting, plus brussels sprout bobbing. Nov. 1. Cabbagetown Park."

AND look at where it's being held! Maybe they need to rename the neighborhood; if not Brussels Sprouts Town Park, at least broaden to "CruciferousTown Park."

This is NOT the one I remember, and it's actually for fried sprouts, but it's close! And it's from a master barbecue chef.

Review of Lovie's Barbecue in Buckhead from AJC:

If you only get one side (all plates come with two) make sure that it is the fried Brussels sprouts. Barbecue traditionalists may scoff, but these sprouts — dusted with Lovies' barbecue rub and given a quick deep-fry, resulting in an almost blackened look — are certainly worth a try.

@mhrackin: My wife and I will have to go there and verify the reviewer's comments, and report back

Sort of like a quest for the 21st century. Go forth and hunt your free-range sprouts, old friend, and may the farce force be with you!

@mhrackin: ... I did come across a recipe of sorts for Barbecued Brussels Sprouts!

The person who can barbecue the mighty sprout indeed deserves the accolade of "Sprout Master"

While i didn't have a chance to check out the Sprouts Market yet, i did come across a recipe of sorts for Barbecued Brussels Sprouts! It was not in the form of a formal reciipe, but rather embedded in a restaurant (3 star rated) that has them on the menu, and the reviewer said "Do not be put off by the name, for they are exceptionally delicious!
