Rather than separate the leaves, we sliced whole spouts very thin, then followed recipe to crisp-tender. Excellent side to CL's peppercorn-crusted beef.
I like the breadcrumbs, nuts, and cheese, but the sprouts did not cook enough. I would roast the brussel sprouts and then add the other ingredients.
This recipe is amazing. It's a bit of work, but my son, who doesn't even like brussels sprouts, loves it!
I HATE brussel sprouts, but have been trying to find recipes to make for my husband and 3 year old, since I know they're good for us. This recipe rocks! I followed the recipe pretty closely, though I might have added a touch more cheese (I just guessed at the amount). I even had 3rds I liked it so much!
I've now made this recipe 3 times to 3 different groups of friends and family - and it was a hit each time. Very light and very elegant. My best friend even liked them - and she hates brussel sprouts.
I followed this recipe exactly and it was outstanding! I am always looking for new brussels sprouts recipes since it is my favorite vegitable, and this one is at the top of the list.
