We're always looking for new sprout recipes so we decided to give this a try. Sour cream is a staple in our house not only for topping things but using as an added ingredient to many dishes as we are very fond of it. The flavors just did not blend well together in this dish. Read More

This recipe is awesome I too was concerned about the ingredients but I loved it! I made it as a side to salmon and it was a perfect complement. I didn't have bacon bits on hand but I did have bacon so I cooked two slices of bacon (which ended up to be about 1/4 cup of bacon then I cooked the onion in the bacon grease; it was a huge hit! Definitely will be making this regularly. Read More

This was okay but I think I would have preferred it without the sour cream. Read More

I usually just eat Brussels sprouts with olive oil after roasting and wanted to add some flare and possibly steam so they wouldn't take so long. I always get intrigued when a recipe calls for sour cream as I always want to use it but have no idea what it really goes with besides tacos. This was great. And I didn't use a pound so just eyeballed spoonfuls and it was awesome. Will make again. Read More
