This side dish is a fast and refreshing way to serve little cabbages. The buttery lemon sauce really brings out the flavor of the sprout. My youngest son loves them!—Joyce Guth, Mohnton, Pennsylvania

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 7, 2013

"Great recipe! I substituted light olive oil for some of the butter and added a dash of cayenne pepper. Please double-check the nutritional information - 1/3 cup butter for six servings is likely more than a trace of fat and 0 cholesterol."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 10, 2012

"I really love this recipe and make it often. It's very tasty, and the lemon juice adds some zing."
