usually love Tyler's recipes, make lots of them and love them. He is such a incredible chef. This dish is "yuk"...sorry, I made exactly according to directions and didn't love the flavor mixture. Brussel sprouts were mushy, potatoes flavorless; just didn't get the whole mixture. Loved watching you make on the cooking channel and I did serve with pork chops, but was left "blah". So sorry. We will continue to watch and make your recipes that we love and are always delicious. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Served this dish last week with roast chicken and roasted vegetables -- my guests raved about the brussel sprouts -- they are wonderful! DSefinitely a keeper! Thanks Tyler. item not reviewed by moderator and published
We like brussel sprouts but this didn't work for us. Followed recipe but tasted bland. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe is a keeper! My seven year old did not know he was eating a vegetable and it is a perfect for potluck! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I really thought I was one of those brussel sprout haters. Well, I know what you are going to say, "saute anything in bacon and it's great". I even make this without the bacon and we love it. Also, sometimes I don't add the potatoes or I'll also add green cabbage if I have some kicking around the fridge. Also, I never use the pearl onion - just some regular white or yellow onion. Thanks Tyler! item not reviewed by moderator and published
My daughter made this recipe yesterday, it was easy and delicious. So much so that we had no leftovers :) item not reviewed by moderator and published
I've made this twice and both times my family absolutely loved it. This is a must try. Thanks Tyler!!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have never liked brussel sprouts-thought they were bitter. I read the reviews and thought I would give it a try. I made for my parents and son-none of which like brussel sprouts and we couldn't stop eating it! Well my son not so much-he couldn't get past the thought of it being brussel sprouts so he suggested I use broccoli next time so I did tonight and he ate a huge helping of it. Served with Tyler's Chicken Cordon Bleu and Roasted Chicken Jus. Beautiful meal! I used shallots due to not being able to find red pearl onions and the store was out of fingerling potatoes so I used yukon gold and they do need to be cut small to get them to cook. The 2nd time I put them in eater and brought them to a boil and then drained them-didn't want them to get too cooked and become mushy but wanted them done quicker this time. Last time seemed to have to cook twice as long as it said to. I put the balsamic vinegar in the first time and thought it would ruin it-smelled so good cooking but it is great! Give this a try! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I saw this recipe with the balsamic vinegar and thought YUM. I really love balsamic vinegar. But I could not eat these. And there are very few things that I simply cannot eat. And yes I used a very good aged 18 yr balsamic that is so good I can almost drink it straight from the bottle. Not sure why I didn't like it with the sprouts but it's just me I suppose. My boyfriend said they were "ok". item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this for Christmas Eve dinner and everyone raved. I'm not a huge brussel sprout fan, but these were SO good. I even picked the brussel sprouts out around the potatoes! The only thing I would suggest, is to slice the pearl onions. The recipe does not specify this, but keeping them whole was a little hard to eat. I think Tyler sliced them on the show too. Amazing recipe though! I can't wait to make them again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I really enjoyed this dish, it was full of flavor and definitely not like mom use to make. I didnt include the potatoes because I had them in another dish, but the brussel sprouts are good enough to stand on their own. I am amazed at a vegetable that I've despised all my life can actually be this good - try them as an adult you and your kids will be surprised. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My husband and I had tried a brussel sprout hash at a local restaurant and it was fabulous. So I went searching this Thanksgiving for a recipe that came close to what the restaurant offered and I was not disappointed. The entire family LOVED it. It was certainly a different side dish to the usual ones and so easy to make. I did not use the fingerling potatoes and the dish did not miss them. Also, instead of pearl onions, I used shallots - true perfection. The fresh thyme and balsamic vinegar made the dish sing. It was such a huge hit that my family asked for it the Sunday after Thanksgiving! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this as a side dish last Thanksgiving rather than the tried and true mashed potatoes and green bean casserole. It was a complete hit! And, yesterday (when discussing this year's menu), I was asked to make it again. Yummy! Only thing is that I added more chicken stock as I had to cook/steam the potatoes longer than indicated. Other than that, I have tried it with shallots instead of red onions and I've added more bacon. All in all, it's another winner with Tyler. He's the best! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was a delicious side dish and so easy to make! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love this recipe. My husband, who never would eat brussel sprouts, loves it too. Thanks, Tyler!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Overall the taste is very yummy. I did boil the potatoes for a bit before adding them to the recipe, however, I think they should be chopped in little pieces after boling them for 10 minutes or so. As is, the recipe is chunky and the potatoes do not fit well with the whole thing. I don't know if I'd make it again, but the flavor is great. Also, what does Two count mean?? I didn't know how much olive oil was needed. Thanks. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I'm only 18 years old, and sometimes my boyfriend and I enjoy making dinner together. We made this as one of the side dishes, and we both agree that this was our favorite dish. It's so tasty and easy to make. A few suggestions: I would recommend cooking the potatoes longer, thankfully my boyfriend's mother skimmed the recipe and told us that the time given would be too little. Also, the red pearl onions are a lot easier to peel once you've had them soaking in hot water for a bit (I learned the hard way). Well, I hope this helps! But it's really fantastic. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was sooooooo good! Vey easy to make and unbelieveabily delicious. I didn't have pearl onions so I used wedges of yellow onion and our grocrey had no fingerling potatoes so I substituted wedges of red potatoes. It worked well and the flavors together were fantastic. Use good quality, thick bacon-do not skimp on that and you will hit a home run with this dish. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This dish was very easy to make and was delicious!!!!! I cooked it for a little bit longer than what the reciped called for to make sure that the potatoes and brussel sprouts were soft enough. The end result was great. My boyfriend loved it and can't wait for me to make it again! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Fast and easy, wonderful side dish. Cooking time was a little longer but worth the wait. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was so good I skipped the rest of my dinner in order to have a second portion. I was cooking for fewer than 6 and didn?t worry about exact measurements, yet it couldn?t have been any better. This is a keeper! item not reviewed by moderator and published
What could be better than bacon and brussel sprouts together? I made this dish to accompany seared halibut fillets and it was incredible. The fingerling potatoes eliminated the need for an unhealthy starch, and the sauted onion gave the dish so much flavor. I actually used shallots instead of red pearl onions, which was delicious. I also needed to use a little more stock to make sure all of the vegetables were tender. Another awesome recipe, Tyler. You are my go to guy for recipes that never disappoint! item not reviewed by moderator and published
