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!!!

My Lord, This was a fabulous recipe when I put my own spin on it. I am sorry I did not try it how it was called for in the recipe. But I made a couple of small changes with the ingredients I had. I used all the ingredients on this recipe except for heavy cream and bread crumbs which I had none of these to use. I followed the recipe exactly how is stated until you get to the part where there is no cheese. LOL. I added 8 oz. Sharp shredded cheese, then I made a rue with canned milk and poured it over the sprouts, bacon and onion. I used more onion and more bacon because I had a frozen gallon bag of Brussels sprouts. It probably all evened out to what was called for in the recipe any how. And instead of bread crumbs, I used crushed corn flakes with the parmesan cheese, which made this absolutely scrumptious. I baked this in the oven until the top was very browned and crunchy. I had a very nice layer of crumbs on top. If this tells you anything, There were 6 grown men and 2 boys here for Easter dinner, and every one of them said this was a keeper recipe. Please make it again. So, all in all, thank you Alliebaba for your take on this recipe. :)

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!

The five stars is from my husband, who doesn't like sprouts and loved this dish. I think it needs more heavy cream, but in general very good. Will do again, especially since hubby loved it.

OH MY GOSH!! I have had a love-hate relationship with Brussels, but since they represent variety in our paltry winter vegetable offerings, I was determined to make peace with them. I used this recipe as a jumping off point--I didn't do the casserole part. Basically, after steaming and shocking the Brussels, I sauteed one sliced onion in butter, then added the Brussels, about 1/2 cup cream, grated zest of 1/2 a lemon, plenty of grated parmesan and salt to taste and heated through. What a winner! MUCHAS GRACIAS Alliebaba! You've saved my relationship!!!! :-)
