      Love Brussel sprouts like this! My kids will even eat them, and one requests this recipe often! I have made it a few times and steaming works much better due to the extra water that each sprout will hold. The extra water tends to thin out the yummy sauce. We usually don't add the cranberries, but we always add pecans. This is a nice quick side dish, but labor intensive, so I make sure the other parts of my meal don't need much attention. Thanks!

      I did cut the recipe in half for just the 2 of us, which gave us enough left over for a second meal! I also steamed the sprouts so they'd retain more of their nutrition, & used a generous measure of the dried cranberries (love those things)! All for a great tasting side, especially with the bacon! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed in New Kids on the Block recipe tag]
