Made this today for our New Year's Day dinner of pork and sauerkraut. Left the cheese off since I wasn't sure if it would go well with sauerkraut. Used onion powder instead of an onion. It was delicious. DH really enjoyed it. Can't wait to make again and top with Parmesan. Thanks!

This is a great recipe to make people love brussels sprouts!! I cooked them in the microwave and then put them in the oven with some prosciutto instead of the ham. We loved this! Thanks Nyteglori! :)

I only had a pound of brussel sprouts but kept the rest of the recipe as written. I didn't add the nutmeg. We all enjoyed these.
