This is from a cooking magazine years ago. 1/2 my family love sprouts, the others don't. This casserole everyone likes. I add it to holiday dinners.

10 Stars! DH and I both love brussel sprouts but even so, they can get a little boring just palin boiled... OF THESE, DH said "these are the best sprouts I have ever had" and wow I could only nod my head in agreement becuase I had my mouth stuffed full of em... and went back for seconds. Easy to put together and excellent combination of flavours... Please see my rating system: a brilliant 5 stars for making our beloved sprouts exciting and new and wonderful again :) Thanks!!!

This is so good. We already like brussels sprouts but I am sure it would convert anyone. It looks lovely and tastes even better. I did use a wee bit more cream as suggested by another reviewer and I used Panko breadcrumbs. I only used a pinch of nutmeg for personal preference. This will be made many more times. Thanks for sharing your recipe. Made for Fall PAC 2009.

I used planko crumbs and this was simply delicious! It was even good as leftovers the next day (might have been even better actually). Thank you so much for sharing!
