Oops ... save my sprouts!
I seem to do this more often than I'd like: I was prepping some dinner for myself the other night and decided to roast some brussels sprouts along with my eggs benedict. I washed, cleaned, and halved the sprouts, put them aside on the counter while I got to work on the eggs, and .. forgot about them. (It was my first hollandaise!) They've sat out on the counter now for about a day and a half. They look okay to me -- a little wilted and pale, but not mushy or "bad." Can I still cook them? Is there any way that will save them, or should I just use them as if they were still fresh?
