If Brussels sprouts taste bitter to you, roast them for a gentle sweetness that goes with cranberries and almonds. This side dish won us over. —Claudia Lamascolo, Melbourne, FL

"Wow! This was delicious! I had fresh cranberries on hand, so I boiled them in water for a few minutes, until they popped. Next I drained them, combined them with the Brussels Sprouts and oil mixture and roasted as directed. I made the reduction sauce as directed, but found I really only needed about half that amount, so will use less next time. Added sliced smoked beef sausage (Eckhart brand) and tossed together. Couldn't find my sliced almonds, so just skipped them this time. We LOVED it; everyone went for seconds."

"This recipe was easy to make; a great go-to recipe I will keep for the future. I chose to drizzle balsamic glaze over the Brussels Sprouts for a quicker dish. I also substituted pecans for almonds due to preference. The cranberries were a great addition!"
