I GREW UP on a farm in southern Louisiana, so we had fresh vegetables most of the year. Mother served brussels sprouts at least twice a week. Fresh from the garden, they were sweet and tender. Now I make this recipe all year using frozen sprouts. -Ruby Miguez, Crowley, Louisiana

"This is the only way my DH will eat Brussels sprouts. I will eat 'em any way on any day, but I will agree that the sauce disguises some of the bitterness of sprouts that people complain about."
