    When my sister and brother-in-law first got married, she made brussels sprouts, put them on the table. He looked at her and said "Are you mad at me?" Even he likes THESE brussels sprouts.

    Made just as directed, only forgot to add the lemon juice at the end. Wow! These were outstanding. Will make again and again. So easy and so tasty. Even my husband, who is scarred from a bitter brussels sprouts experience, loves these!

    Absolutely delicious! I think we are all scared in some shape or form by brussels sprouts as a child but these top the cake! I used bacon because we were having bacon wrapped filets and I didn't want to double up on the kinds of meat we were having (and also b/c it was what I had on hand!). The dish was rich and flavorful but also had that light summery taste with the addition of the fresh squeezed lemon at the end. We will definitely have this one again!

    I had never eaten brussel sprouts. This was my first time to prepare them. Even my picky daughter tried them and liked this recipe. It is a keeper in our house!

    My first time trying brussel sprouts and I loved them!! My guests who said they were not a fan all got second helpings of them! I will definitely make this again.

    Yet another way to make the veggie I hated as a kid, the veggie that I Iove as an adult. The lemon compliments nicely

    This recipe got rave reviews yesterday for Christmas dinner - even from folks who didn't know they liked brussels sprouts! I couldn't find fresh brussels sprouts so I successfully substituted frozen.

    Funny... I was eating this and thought, "It's good, but the brussel sprouts are too large", then I noticed that I was supposed to have halved them. I think that would have helped a lot. Also important: get some thicker sliced prosciutto, or maybe just sub in a small amount of bacon. Still, even with my slip ups, this was a decent dish. Better browning through halving the sprouts and thicker pieces of prosciutto will no doubt make it something special when I try it again. Also, very quick and easy to make.

    This is an awesome recipe! We were in a rut with veggies and wanted to try something different. Instead of butter I used flavored avocado oil and it was delicious! This recipe will definitely be in our rotation!

    Super good. A staple at Thanksgiving dinner for a number of years now- who'd ever have thought I'd get asked to bring Brussels sprouts annually?! :)

    This was good, though the lemon juice did not come across as "lemon" to me, but more as a bitterness... I'll try adding a small amount of lemon zest next time (instead of juice?) and see if that provides more lemon flavor.

    This is one of my favorite veggie sides...it's hearty and tasty. It's a perfect side for Cheesy Meat Loaf Minis from this site.

    One of my family's all time favorite. Even my nephews and nieces request them.
