Cream of chicken soup creates the easy sauce that coats these tender sprouts from Daphne Blandford of Gander, Newfoundland. Seasoned with thyme and sprinkled with sliced almonds, this side dish is special enough for guests.
A tangy dressing makes this refreshing vegetable blend especially pleasing. You could serve it as an appetizer or a side dish. Sometimes I use thinly sliced carrots, zucchini or pearl onions.
This is a deeply delicious and sure-fire way to get my husband to enjoy Brussels sprouts. Between the roasted flavor of the veggies and smoky, crisp bacon, it will convert even the pickiest eater. —Lisa Speer, Palm Beach, Florida
"These mini cabbages are surprisingly big on flavor," notes Tina Repack of Johnstown, Pennsylvania. Although the brussels sprouts are very simply seasoned, roasting them caramelizes their natural sugars, giving them a subtle sweetness.
"I like to make these special brussels sprouts when I need a fast dressed-up vegetable side dish," writes Karen Haen of Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin. "The recipe is sized perfectly for a dinner for my husband, Gene, and me. And it's easy to triple when we're expecting guests."
I love brussels sprouts and used to grow them in our garden when my children were small. I created this recipe myself, but I'm always on the lookout for other new ways to prepare sprouts.

There’s nothing to this recipe, the preparation and cooking are so quick. I throw in dried cranberries, but you can let your imagination take over. Add a handful of raisins or walnuts at the end...even sliced oranges. If your Brussels sprouts are large, cut them in half. —Ellen Ruzinsky, Yorktown Heights, NY
