This was so delicious!  We’ve made this as one of our side dishes when our family has had grilled steak, chicken, seafood or even when we’ve had a pairing of surf and turf.  Even if you’ve never really liked brussel sprouts, I promise… you’ve never tried them this way.  They are so divinely scrumptious!  My kids; to especially include my youngest, who is the most finicky of the picky eaters in our family likes brussel sprouts when they are cooked like this!   I’ve had to start making a double batch whenever I make them for lunch or dinner.  I recently made them for a potluck gathering we went to and they were a huge hit and the ONLY vegetable that was completely gone!  My husband was shocked as he didn’t think they’d go over so well due to the fact that most people haven’t tried or dislike brussel sprouts.  Obviously when they are prepared this way, they are winning over more taste buds with their tantalizing mouth watering deliciousness!  Give this recipe a try and let us know what you think.  Don’t forget to try some Redd’s Apple Ale with them.
