I'm not fond of finding a recipe and rearranging, deleting, adding until after I've made it the first time. Stacy, I have to tell you, I didn't change anything with this recipe and these are some of the BEST Brussel sprouts I've ever made, bar none!!! I wanted something different, remembered the sprouts and made them to your specs and had them with some BBQ'd ribs. Cut them in half, boiled them for almost 5 minutes which left them with just the right amount of crunch. The combination of butter, honey mustard dill and onion is delightful. Please know that your recipe has been saved and shared already with my daughter and 2 neighbors. I can't wait to do this one again. TY!! Read More

This was an interesting departure from the typical bacon/garlic preparation and while we enjoyed it as something different we still prefer the typical bacon/garlic preparation. I guess we just weren't huge fans of the sweetness. More important I'm glad I didn't cook the Brussels sprouts as long as directed - 6-7 minutes was all they needed. Read More

I made these to serve for dinner but they were so good I ate them all before dinner! Instead of boiling (i dont care for boiled veggies) I cooked the Brussels sprouts in a couple tablespoons of olive oil a hot skillet for around 6 minutes. I prepared the sauce using 3 parts honey to 2 parts mustard and I used half yellow mustard and half brown. I don't think that any of my changes strayed from the original intent of the author. The mustard is a perfect combined with these little cabbage veggies (think corned beef & cabbage with mustard). I will make these again. Thanks sueb for recommending. And thanks Stacy for sharing this recipe! Read More

I had a bag of frozen microwave-in-the-bag sprouts. My family had them previously and didn't like them so I was nervous about serving them again. They were cooked and ready to serve when I made a last minute search on this site to try to make them tastier. I was in such a hurry that I just plopped on some soft butter squeezed on some honey sprinkled on some onion powder and dill weed and mixed it all together. I left out the mustard but what a transformation! Everyone scarfed them down and asked for more! Very yummy. Read More

I think it would be better baking these with olive oil instead of boiling them which would also help cut down on the cabbage smell in the house. I will probably also add a little more of the dijon mustard (hot version) next time. Otherwise this was tasty. Read More

I love dijon so naturally I thought I'd try this. I quartered my brussel sprouts and fried them in a pan with olive oil then mixed in the dressing afterwards. Delicious! I probably added a bit more than needed but the dressing is to die for. Thanks for this one! Will definitely use again! Read More
