“I wanted a different green for our Thanksgiving feast. I love Brussels sprouts along with half of my family, the other half hates them--all enjoyed this dish! Recipe from Sunset magazine. They suggest smaller sized sprouts to make it look pretty, I just quartered some of the larger ones. I don't know what steamed chestnuts are so I substituted water chestnuts with delicious results”
