Brussels sprouts get dressed up for the holidays when I make this flavorful dish. Lemon and dill season the buttery sauce, and chopped walnuts add just the right crunch.

"This was very tasty! The walnuts added a perfect crunch. I can hardy wait to have the leftovers tomorrow! I used a package of frozen Brussels sprouts and just cooked them in the microwave until hot, then poured the sauce over the top."
