These brussels sprouts were fantastic! They were easy to prepare and so flavorful. I liked what I sampled in the pan before even adding them to the onion mix. This is going into my keeper file. Thanks so much! Made for Every Day is a Holiday tag.

We liked these a lot but I just wasn't really fond of the sweet and sour flavor. I loved the method and would like to use it in the summer when I don't want to turn the oven on to roast veggies. I used finely chopped onion instead of shallots and would love to try it again with some garlic instead of sugar and vinegar.
