    Velouria's Note:

    I tried this recipe when I was on a low-carb diet over a year ago. I was surprised at how great these were. They were the tastiest Brussels sprouts I've ever had. I got the recipe from the Atkins website, and I still use it.

      Great way to prepare brussel sprouts. The lemon is aromatic and flavourful. Mine were a bit bitter but I don't think it had anything to do with the recipe. I will use this recipe again. This recipe was made for 2010 Spring PAC.

      Easy tasty recipe - steam the sprouts ahead of time have the butter & lemon ready and 10 minutes before serving finish the sprouts - lovely flavor combination with the lemon, butter & sprouts
