This was simple to make and very tasty. We were having it with our Thanksgiving dinner so I steamed the sprouts in the microwave the day before then finished the dish just before dinner. This recipe is a little bland, but that was a good fit in the menu. Thanks for a new way to enjoy brussels sprouts!

This is a great recipe for Brussels sprouts! Loved the sweetness the cider added. The sprouts I used were from our garden and were on the small side so I only boiled them for about 8 minutes. Tossed with a little salt and pepper.... yum!
