Very dressy way to serve brussels sprouts. Has a nice, cheesy/creamy flavor, and is great for special occasions or when you just feel like having something a little out of the ordinary.

Good flavor for the cheese sauce. I learned that white wine Worcestershire sauce has had a name change: Lea and Perins now call it Marinade for Chicken. It contains a sweet white wine, corn syrup, spices, etc. <br/>I did not have any so I tried mixing 1/2 Tb. white wine with 1/2 T. regular Worchestershire sauce and a tad of sugar. Next time I'll have purchased the correct stuff and try it again. Who knows, might both be good. Also, I added a bit of butter to the bread crumbs and a tad more parmesan cheese.

What a great idea for sprouts, very simple yet packed with flavors! I had one little problem...okay, two little problems. My local store didn't have white wine worchestershire sauce which is okay because the instructions didn't say when to use it so I ommited it. :o) Other than that, the dish was visually appealing and had a great twist for plain ol' sprouts!
