This was great. Please use fresh Brussels sprouts, I used 1.5 lbs and there was plenty of sauce. Just excellent.
Okay. I don't like brussel sprouts. I think it comes from some childhood trauma of sitting alone at the table with a plate of those miniature lettuce heads staring at me until wee hours of the night. But I have been looking for a holiday side dish to change up the same ol green bean casserole overdone dish. So for some reason I made this. Guess what...who needs therapy when you got this stereotype busting brussel sprout recipe? This dish was amazing. My only alteration was that I had a couple of pouches of microwave long grain and wild rice in the pantry, so I nuked them and used them for the rice base. I gobbled this up, my neighbors loved it, so did my kids. The Procuitto is a must, don't skip it. It adds a bit of protein and salt to the party. I had no idea they even had frozen brussel sprouts but now I have them as a staple in my freezer. Childhood trauma cured! Thanks!!!
I love this-it's so flavorful I wanted to keep eating more! I served it as a side dish and leftovers make for a great lunch! My husband suggests trying cauliflower.
After reading the reviews, I was sure those who had given this negative ones must be mistaken. I was positive this would be good. This recipe proves only that if you put a heavy, creamy sauce on a leather shoe, it will taste decent. If you're the type that won't eat broccoli or cauliflower without drowning it in cheese sauce, this recipe is for you. If you enjoy veggies without trying to transform them into a new food group, try the "Brussels Sprouts with Pecans" recipe on this site. I always win over sprout haters with that one. It's excellent.
I used panko breadcrumbs, which were great too! My husband & I both loved this recipe...made it to accompany filets.
