I discovered this recipe while watching a cooking show some years ago. The first time I served it, my guests raved and were surprised when I told them it was brussels sprouts. —Tangee Zayas-Thaler Silver Lake, Ohio

"YUM to the 10th degree is this recipe. It's the best Brussels sprouts medley I have ever made. I cooked the sprouts for 6 minutes because we like them more al dente. I used a few more mushrooms because I wanted to use them up. This is definitely a keeper!!!"
