I made this for Thanksgiving with my parents. It was excellent! I'm sure I'll get requests for this in future. I used an apple-smoked gouda and some really nice turkey bacon. I baked it for about 20 minutes, which seemed long enough. The smokey flavor and creamy sauce really enhanced the brussels sprouts! I love brussels sprouts regardless, but this was a really nice, special way to serve them. My mother loved them, too, and my father--who doesn't care for brussels sprouts--raved about them. Even DS liked them okay (not bad, considering he's 3). DH was the only one who didn't care for it, and that was not because he thought it was bad, but because he's a purist--"gilding the lily" was his phrase! But oh, what gilding! Thanks for posting JoAnn!
