"There we're no leftovers after serving these brussel sprouts. The only change I did to this recipe is cut the sprouts in half. Would definitely make again."

"Every year my family asks me to make this recipe. I use shallots rather than onion and do not use the bread crumbs, but if you like brussel sprouts this is a great recipe."
