    I usually just roast them over high heat with EVOO, salt and pepper. I'll finish with hot honey sometimes for the last few minutes

    This.  I chop in half. Don't be afraid to get a good char on outer leaves.  Sometimes I'll put some cayanne or paprika on.  Can also hit with grated parmesan.  My family loves them grilled.

    Do you roast them in a cast iron skillet?

    @Iamsan I mostly use a rotisserie basket now, but I have used CI or just one of those finer mesh grill mats so I don't lose them.

    You dont find the leaves fall off?  Do you roast whole or in halfs?

    I also chop in half and I like to get a good sear on the cut side.

    Martian heads for the win-Here's a ball-park recipe I use:
    CI- raised direct around 350-375*F til they pass the toothpick test. 
    Cut 'em in half, chop up some yellow onion, toss in some minced garlic, S&P to taste, coat in EVOO.  Enjoy.

    However you do them, a little balsamic added near the end of the cook (possibly with some water if they're dryish) really elevates them.

    I will usually either shred them or peel the leaves. I then saute them in a hot pan with butter S&P and nutmeg.  When they are almost done, I add a few drops of lemon juice.

    roast over high heat with EVOO and salt and pepper.  Sometimes add some feta cheese at serving time as well.  also have had them with a side of bang bang sauce.

    However you cook them, tossing a few thinly sliced peppers (pick your heat) in at the end and finishing with Thai chili sauce is a good direction.  You can decorate with whatever - chopped peanuts, cilantro or mint, splash of rice vinegar or vinegar white balsamic.
    I do not have any broken or spare parts for any size egg.

    Slice then Parboil till bright green. This removes a bunch of bitterness. In a CI pan cook a few slices of bacon to be diced. Throw brussels in the bacon grease to crisp up, throw bacon bits in then a little bit of Thai Sweet Chili sauce.  Good stuff
