Balsamic-Glazed Brussels Sprouts Recipe

My relatives claim to hate Brussels sprouts, which I took as a challenge to come up with a recipe they'd love. When I served this at my Christmas buffet, there wasn't a sprout left in the bowl! —Carol Bess White, Portland, Oregon

"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."

"Great recipe! The only change I made was using honey dijon mustard because I couldn't locate the regular coarse ground dijon in my cupboard. It gave it a touch of sweetness that might even be better than the original recipe."
