“These are a wonderful way to cook Brussels Sprouts...just a little bit out of the ordinary. My daughter, who would have never approached this veggie was first intrigued by the smell, saying that it smelled wonderful...she nibbled off my plate, then came in for another taster. Since I had not planned on her eating this, she scarfed down the last in the pot! I have some wonderful recipes for this veggie, but this had become one of my all time favorite!”
