Sheila's (tolerable) Brussels Sprouts

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 10 mins

I have 2 great recipes for brussels sprouts, both from the fabulous "Bridge" series of cookbooks. This is one of them. I have to take one or the other every (Canadian) Thanksgiving, when we go to my son's for dinner. Even people who don't like sprouts, like these....I hope you try them. Cooking and prep. times are approximate.

These are much more than tolerable! The sauce nicely complements the brussels sprouts with just the right touch of sweetness and savoriness. Made the recipe just as written and would do so again. Thanks for sharing.
