Herbed Brussels Sprouts Recipe

From Warner Robins, Georgia, Debbie Marrone shares this delicious take on a seasonal standby. "Topped with a tangy sauce and mixed with mushrooms, these brussels sprouts are so tasty that even children enjoy them," she says. Brussesls sprouts for a radiant glow? Not only do Brussels sprouts help protect against cancer due to the potent phytochemical, sulfoaphane, but they can also promote healthier skin. They are a great source of vitamin C, vitamin A and beta carotene, all of which contribute to healthier skin.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 21, 2012

I simplified and reduced the recipe - I made about a half batch and used approx. 1 T. each butter, brown sugar and cider vinegar to make a glaze to saute the sprouts with after steaming. I used a little salt and pepper, and my husband added a little olive oil while they were sauteing. Easy, fast and delicious. We have made these multiple times.

Made these for Christmas and everyone loved them, even those who "don't eat brussel sprouts". Will use again and again....

I used frozen sprouts and cooked them in the microwave then continued with the recipe. The second time I made them I used only one pound of fresh sprouts and cooked them in an 8 x 8 pan.

More mushrooms are fine if you love them like we do! Also frozen br.sp. work well, too.
