I didn't like brussel sprouts until I tried these. You can had some heat with a sprinkling of hot pepper flakes.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large bowl, combine butter, shallots, tomato, caraway seeds, and dill.
  2. Rinse brussels sprouts well and remove any brown or damaged leaves.
  3. Cut off the stem ends, then cut each sprout into slices, cutting from top to stem end.
  4. Add sprouts to tomato mixture and stir well to combine.
  5. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  6. Lay out six 12 x 12-inch aluminium foil squares and divide sprout mixture equally among them, making a small mound on half of each square.
  7. Then fold each square over to cover the mound and crimp all the edges closed.
  8. Arrange the packets on a baking sheet and bake until sprouts are tender, about 30 minutes.
  9. Use a kitchen shears to cut the packets open, then serve hot.

Great recipe! Beautiful presentation, lovely mix of color and the taste is wonderful. I added salt & Pepper and 2 large cloves of garlic, minced. Another winner from Dancer - Thank-you

I'm sorry - I really wanted to like these - they lookd lovely. We like our sprouts just as they are - but decided to try this for a change. very easy to prepare and no trouble to cook, but we felt the sprouts were mushy and not at all nice. Maybe they were over cooked?
