Brussels Sprouts Casserole

Recipe by Jim C.

This may sound like a crazy combination, but it's a wonderful dish! The mushrooms and water chestnuts add complementary textures, and the cheese sauce brings it all together.

I made this for my brussel-sprout-loving husband and boy am I glad I did. I really don't care for them but I must say I enjoyed these. I loved the different textures (especially the water chestnuts and the creamy cheese sauce). I will be making this again for BOTH my hubby and I. Thanks so much for sharing it, JimC.
