We love Brussels Sprouts and this is a tasty preparation for this wonderful vegetable. I've made it without the bread crumbs when DH was low-carbing and it was still wonderful.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Wash and trim all discolored leaves from the Brussels sprouts; cut a tiny "X" into the base of the stem to help them cook evenly.
  2. In a medium pan, steam Brussels sprouts until tender, about 15 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan or the microwave melt half the butter and stir in the mustard, lemon juice and pepper to taste.
  4. In a frying pan melt the remaining butter and saute the bread crumbs, stirring constantly until golden.
  5. To serve, transfer sprouts to a heated dish.
  6. Pour butter mixture over the sprouts and mix lightly.
  7. Sprinkle with bread crumbs and lemon zest.

Wonderful brussels sprouts! I used the frozen steam bagged brussels sprouts and plain bread crumbs since I had those on hand. So quick and easy to make, the sauce is very good. Just enough zip, great combination! Thank you hon for posting your recipe.
