    LOVED IT! Next time I'd like to try roasting longer and skip the boiling.

    I made these last night and they were fantastic. I have always loved brussels sprouts but this is the first time I've made them (weird?!). I will definitely be making these again. The crumb topping complemented these perfectly.

    This is a big hit in our home. Even my young children will eat brussel sprouts this way. The adults in my family enjoy a dash of cayenne pepper mixed in with the topping for added punch. During the summer we will make a small amount in a 3-cup square glass dish and bake in the toaster oven.

    I made this recipe on Christmas Day to go with our turkey dinner. I used fresh brussels sprouts and cut them in half since they were so large. We all agreed that these were the best brussels sprouts we'd ever had.

    My husband and one of my daughters love brussel sprouts, so I am always looking for new recipes with them. This one is a keeper, and it is so easy.
