Baking vegetables into a casserole usually makes them more appealing to kids (and adults!), and this Brussels sprouts recipe is no exception: "Wow! Fantastic!" raves reviewer Bostonsmaman. "We're not normally Brussels sprouts fans, but this dish was GONE!" Like the other casseroles, this dish can be prepared ahead of time and refrigerated or frozen, then baked the day of your gathering.
