    This was very tasty and I usually avoid brussels sprouts when I see them offered. But not anymore. Love this! We will be making this again.

    I bought a bag of Brussels Sprouts at Costco. I used frozen cranberries instead of dried. Orange juice instead of water. Tastes good.

    Just love this recipe for sprouts, after reading another review I was also naughty and added bacon. Will definitely be making again.

    We loved this side dish! It's "elegant". I toasted the nuts to bring out more flavor and to crisp them up a bit. I will be making this again.

    We loved this! My husband said these were the best Brussels sprouts he has had, and my son had thirds. Loved the combination of flavors, the cranberries really add to the dish. I think a good balsamic is key here as well.
