When your conventional oven is filled with the turkey and side dishes, these dressed-up brussels sprouts can be prepared in the microwave. I think you will agree the cheese topping makes these sprouts special enough to include in a holiday meal.

“This is very pretty on a Christmas dinner table.” Tarragon and vinegar spruce up quick and easy brussels sprouts, and pimientos give them a perfect splash of color. Carolyn Haves - Johnston City, Illinois
My husband and I have always loved brussels sprouts, but our kids wouldn't touch them until I made this recipe. Tomato juice and cheese give this vegetable a place on the family table.—Diane Hixon, Niceville, Florida
I never thought I liked brussel sprouts until I was given this very old recipe. It's delicious and may just change your mind about Brussel sprouts! *It's not a good idea to add salt to this recipe, as the bacon and parmesan cheese are already salty enough.
I've substituted broccoli and/or cauliflower for the sprouts and they are also delicious prepared in this way. The only change I make is that I generally use a microwave steamer to cook the broccoli and cauliflower.
Ordinary brussels sprouts get jazzed up with a sweet, tangy sauce in this festive side dish. Even those who normally steer clear of sprouts will ask for seconds of these!—Holly Scarborough, Melbourne, Florida
