    Delish! And quick! I made this for Thanksgiving and even my non-brussels sprouts eaters devoured it. I didn't change a thing! It's perfect as it is! Can't wait to have it again soon.

    Made to recipe. Easy and very good but next time would reduce the amount of sugar by half. Served with CL's Herb & Mustard-Crusted Fillet and Asiago Potato-Bacon Gratin.

    This recipe was flavorful and easy to make (although it took a long time to chop all the sprouts), but I felt was lacking a little something. Next time, I will try to mince the garlic instead of slicing it. The sugar was a nice twist to take off some of the bite for guests who werent' keen on the bitterness of brussel sprouts. Maybe brown sugar would offer a little more of a "candied" taste?

    I've tried a couple of different brussels sprouts recipes over the last year--trying to like them. I have been very disappointed so far, but this recipe was terrific! I didn't want to stop eating it. With most brussels spouts recipes, I don't want to start. This will be the go to recipe from now on.

    My husband and sister claimed to hate Brussels sprouts... This recipe made them lovers :) Made it several times, always delicious!

    This is an easy recipe that delivers fantastic results! We are watching our cholesterol so I cut the butter and sugar in 1/2 and it still turned out very, very good. We will definitely make this again!

    My 5 year old son literally begs for brussel sprouts thanks to this recipe. It will make a believer out of any non-veggie eater. And it is so easy.

    This is the best best best brussels sprouts recipe ever. I might reduce the amount of sugar by just a bit.

    I did cut the recipe to a third, which means I had to guess a little about proportions. This was pretty good--nice and crunchy. I added slivered almonds instead of pecans. I served with salmon.

    Yum! I recommend using Trader Joe's Praline Pecans (they are out of this world delicious) and reducing the sugar down to one tablespoon. I've never liked brussels sprouts before, but devoured this!

    These is the first Brussels sprouts I have ever had in my life. Let me tell you, it was delicious. Will definitely become a staple in my house. It is like a mixture between carrots, lettuce, and broccoli. I recommend this to anyone that says Brussels sprouts are gross. This will prove them wrong.

    I made this recipe last year for the holidays and my family has requested it again this year. Very tasty!

    Easy and fast to make! Besides that, it is delicious.

    One of my favorite winter side dishes, and a great way to incorporate this very healthy (but not always very tasty) veg into your diet.

    I really dont like brussel sprouts but I made this for my husband and I have to admit I really liked it. If youre trying to break out of your brussel sprout hate then try this recipe. I used pine nuts instead of pecans and added sliced carrots. It was excellent!

    Excellent, had it for Christmas Day. People who said they did not like Brussel Sprouts liked it and it was easy...my husband sauted everything!

    I can't say enough about these Brussel Sprouts. They are wonderful! And I don't like Brussel Sprouts!!

    I have made this multiple times and there is never any left. The last time I made it was Christmas Eve, serving it with prime rib and it did not disappoint. I have used apple juice in place of chicken broth and left out the sugar which seemed to work really well. Otherwise I've always made it to spec.

    This recipe is awesome! The sugar adds just the right amount of sweetness.

    crave this dish !!! it's just soooo good ! got my husband to eat brussel sprouts for the first time in 30 yrs with this!

  • debber Posted: 01/19/13

    Easy to make and good for you too. A non-brussel sprout eater found this recipe good enough to go through his entire serving, asking me to pass the recipe on to his sister. I used 1/2 the sugar on recommendation from another reviewer, but next time I think I'll follow it to a tee or substitute brown sugar instead. Not as full a taste as the brussel sprouts I've had cooked more simply but I will try again.

    I served these at Christmas along with green beans for the Brussels sprouts haters (no one is neutral about Brussels sprouts). After a taste, they loved them - no leftovers! New converts.

    I found this too sweet. Like blackened sprouts much better. No one liked much.

  • snoopy66 Posted: 02/19/13

    This was so quick (used pre-shredded sprouts) and easy and really good. If you like brussels sprouts this is a great preparation. Used a little less sugar than called for andit was perfect.
