Savory Brussels Sprouts

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 7 mins

The key to making tasty Brussels sprouts is the same one for broccoli...Do Not Overcook! These have a savory addition of Dijon mustard and a dash of cream.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Trim the base of the sprouts and peel off the bruised outer leaves.
  2. Cut in half if the sprouts are large.
  3. Cook the sprouts in lightly salted boiling water for around 5-8 minutes.
  4. Continue to taste test and they are done when just barely tender with a slight crispness left.
  6. They will then be strong tasting, which is why a lot of people don't like this delicious vegetable.
  7. Stir in the mustard and the cream.
  8. Season with pepper.

This is so yummy and simple. I steamed the brussels sprouts. Then mixed them with Dijon mustard and skim milk. Thanks Geema :) Made for Alphabet tag game

Very nice - and simple to make. I followed the recpie completely and made them for Thanksgiving and they were all gone by the end, which is not always the casre with sprouts!

I used semi-skimmed milk and halved the recipe. The dijon adds an interesting taste to the sprouts, but I still prefer just butter and nutmeg. Might try it with cream next time for extra richness, but I'm trying to watch my waist at the moment. Thanks for sharing! :)
