Best sprouts ever, my guests cleaned them up! item not reviewed by moderator and published
These were a hit at Thanksgiving. Had to use onion instead of shallot but the flavors were still amazing. Perfectly tender. Even my son ate them and said they were so good and he is still trying to convince me that pizza is a vegetable! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Absolutely delish! I took the advice of some others and added some white wine...but I also mixed in 2tbsp of water with a 1 tbsp of corn starch to thicken it up a bit. I used diced onion, since I did not have shallots on hand. Was a big hit in my house! Will certainly make again!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This dish won my family over to loving and eating Brussels Sprouts! It is now a frequent request for Sprouts with dinner...still can't believe my ears every time it happens. Great recipe and very simple. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Steamed brussel sprouts are sort of bland, but roasted are sometimes too hard. This method of simmering in chicken broth is a fabulous idea. I cook my cabbage in broth, but I never thought to do my brussel sprouts this way. Simple and tasty...and now my teenage daughter is eating her brussel sprouts too! item not reviewed by moderator and published
this recipe is great. But I have to agree with everyone that thinks putting all the recipes on the same page instead of in categories like before is a bummer. Go back to the other forum that directed us to what we want. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Bacon... Need I say more! Easy and delicious. Made as a side for Thanksgiving, and even family members who didn't like Brussels sprouts loved them. Prepped day before and finished steaming just before dinner to finish cooking, then combined the ingredients for an easy last minute side. Will definitely make these as a regular winter side dish. item not reviewed by moderator and published
So good! And could not be easier. Was a hit with all as a Thanksgiving side. For some reason could not find the shallots, so subbed chopped red onion and was just fine. Cross your fingers that you get mild tasting brussels sprouts. item not reviewed by moderator and published
