    I was looking for a healthy Brussels Sprouts dish and am really glad I found this one. I made it tonight for a family dinner and everyone liked it. We had dinner at my sister’s house. She told me she wasn’t letting me take any of the Brussels Sprouts home, and she meant it! I will probably only make them this way in the future when I don’t want to roast them.

    This is the best Brussel's sprout recipe I’ve encountered. I was puzzled about the sugar, but, by following the recipe precisely, I was rewarded with a superb side dish. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

    My family's favorite way to enjoy brussels sprouts. I add a little bit of minced garlic, but otherwise make this exactly as presented here. Delicious!

    I bought brussel sprouts for the first time yesterday and looked online today for a recipe. I made this for supper and got only rave reviews and requests for more. I'll be cooking with brussel sprouts from now on!

    Very good! Quick and easy to make and the slight sweetness really added a lot to the tast of the brussel sprouts. Making it for Thanksgiving this year!
