Ingredients

18 small fresh brussels sprouts (about 3/4 pound)
3/4 cup water
1 1/2 teaspoons reduced-calorie margarine
2 teaspoons all-purpose flour
1/4 cup skim milk
1 (3/4-ounce) slice low-fat process Swiss cheese, cut into strips
Dash of dry mustard

Preparation

Wash brussels sprouts thoroughly, and remove discolored leaves. Using a sharp knife, cut off stem ends, and cut a shallow X in bottom of each sprout. Bring water to a boil in a medium saucepan; add brussels sprouts. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 12 minutes or until brussels sprouts are tender. Drain and keep warm.

Melt margarine in a small heavy saucepan over low heat; add flour, stirring until smooth. Cook, stirring constantly, 1 minute. Gradually add milk; cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture is thickened and bubbly. Add cheese and mustard, stirring until cheese melts. Spoon sauce over warm brussels sprouts.
