"We loved this side dish! It's "elegant". I toasted the nuts to bring out more flavor and to crisp them up a bit. I will be making this again."

"We loved this! My husband said these were the best Brussels sprouts he has had, and my son had thirds. Loved the combination of flavors, the cranberries really add to the dish. I think a good balsamic is key here as well."

"Made this 3 days ago & had to go online for the recipe to make it again for family on vacation. Had to create this account to start reviewing because totally disagree with the bad review. I'm not generally a big fan of Brussel sprouts but these were great. I did add a little chopped crisp bacon."
