Brussies have always been one of our favorite veggies, so when I saw this recipe, I just had to give it a whirl. I have made a similar version but this one takes it up a few bumps, especially with the lemon. As a volunteer field editor, I highly recommend this recipe, and it will be a regular on my table.
I do not really care for brussel sprouts but know that I need to incorporate more "greens" into my diet so I tried this recipe. Surprisingly, it was very good. I loved the zing of the lemon juice. I did add some cayenne pepper to give it some zip. I will definitely make this again and add some crumbled bacon.
These are the best Brussels sprouts I have ever had
