A very simple and tasty way to serve Brussels sprouts. Everyone asks for seconds when I serve these! Even the kids!



Original recipe yields 6 servings
The ingredient list now reflects the servings specified


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Place the Brussels sprouts into a casserole or Dutch oven with a lid. Arrange pieces of butter on top of the sprouts. Season with salt, pepper and lemon juice. Cover with the lid.

  • Bake for 25 minutes in the preheated oven, or until sprouts are just barely tender. Stir now and then to keep them from sticking. During the last 10 minutes, sprinkle the pine nuts over the sprouts and remove the lid. When the sprouts are done, sprinkle blue cheese over them before serving.

I didn't have the pine nuts or feta cheese but followed the recipe otherwise. I cut the sprouts in half and they cooked just fine in the 25 minutes. They are wonderful we all loved them this way. Read More

My 6 and 4 year old nephews asked for three servings of this. Amazing! They did cook for an extra ten minutes or so. I was just hoping to introduce brussels sprouts to the family in a more delicous way than I remember them but these were fantastic! I always hated these as a kid; I guess they just needed a good recipe! Read More

Instead of boiling them to pre-cook a bit try cutting into quarters and steaming briefly--keeps the taste and color better. We leave out the Blue cheeze cuz at my house we think it tastes like feet--we use Havardi and everyone raves. A surprising every-day veggie and SO diferent from our mothers oookey sprouts. Read More

This is a fair recipe but needs a lot of correcting: increase cooking time decrease amount of butter used. Would not make again. Read More

Brussel Sprouts were very tasty. However they took way longer to cook than 25 minutes. I would suggest partially boiling them before baking. Very easy recipe. Read More

Simple yet tasty way of preparing sprouts which was my nightmare food from childhood. Don't like Feta so I grated Peccorino Romano cheese over top. I also toasted the pine nuts before adding. Read More

I am always looking for good brussels sprouts recepies and this one I will definately make again. Since I didn't have blue cheese I used feta; and I served it over couscous with a bit of feta and a sprinkling of lemon juice mixed in. It made a lovely little dish. Read More
