This was awesome! I made changes like many of us are prone to do. I used a 28oz bag of frozen brussel sprouts. I sliced my cucumber thinner, and added garlic and oregano to the saute. I thickened the roux with cornstarch as I was out of flour. Then I added a decent amount of hot sauce (Texas Pete). I covered everything with foil when I baked it so the sprouts were nice and soggy. Only 4 of 7 guests would try it (the others being fearful of brussel sprouts) and they loved it. I was going to send the leftovers home, but there was nothing to send. I will never make brussel sprouts any other way again.Read More

mmmmmmmmmmmmmm.. very delicious. the only things i did differently was cut the cucumber in smaller pieces than as directed, but thats a personal preference, and i didnt have any chicken bouillon so i used two packets of the chicken flavoring from ramen noodles packets. lol. oh and i also put some chicken in there, cuz i had extra from another recipe i was making and someone wrote on here it lacked a little flavor so i tried it cuz chicken never hurt anything.. i think it wouldve been perfectly good without the chicken. very flavorful and good. i dont have the problem of some other reviewers of brussels sprouts. i
Yummy dish. I like very spicy food so to liven up the sauce I added cayenne pepper and cumin powder, it adds a nice flavor. I didn't have enough Brussels Sprouts so I added zucchini and it was just fine. This was my first time making a roux, if I make this again I'll let the roux brown a little bit longer. I feel there was still a bit of a "flour" after taste.
Excellent! I'll admit I was hesitant to try it because I thought it would taste like salad dressing but it was so worth it. Creamy and mildly flavoured sauce and the cucumbers are delicious. Thanks for a great recipe!
I searched this recipe thinking I had brussel sprouts in the fridge and was dissapointed when I got home and discovered that I was mistaken. So I made it with broccoli instead. Very tasty, but I'm going to buy some sprouts for the next go. :)
I was looking for a new and different way to do sprouts... This was ok, but probably not one we will be doing again.
this dish is delicious! i added green onions, and replaced chix boullion with vegitable boullion for vegitarian dish. i served this with cous cous and pinenuts.
This tasted like half a recipe to me. The creamy sauce was good but even with adding some roasted chicken breast it was still sort of boring. It tastes like pot pie filling minus all of the pot pie stuff.
The sauce in this recipe was REALLY good and my mom and husband loved the brussels sprouts. Not me, I tried them, but I don't think anything can make me like them and I'm NOT that picky an eater. We all thought the cooked cucumber was a little strange, though. But we did like the sauce a lot!
Surprisingly, this was excellent! Since there are only two of us, I cut the recipe in half and the only change was to add some cayenne and garlic. Somehow I ended up with too much gravy, but made sure just enough was used to coat the vegetables instead of drown them. Very, very tasty and we'll have this again. Thanks for the recipe!!
Wonderful! I don't eat brussels sprouts myself, but my husband loved them. I did enjoy the cucumbers though. Simple recipe.
delicious! the sauce tastes wonderful, I could almost just eat that with a spoon! the cucumbers add a special touch to the dish. very different but great!
Pretty darn good. Next time I make it, I will try it with a little spice. :) Substituted about a cup of chicken broth for bouillon.
Would have been a '5' but for its heaviness.
We All like it even all 3 of my kids
We made this as called for except adjusted the serving size in half. The recipe turned out great, the cucumbers added a nice counterbalance to the brussels sprouts. I love Brussels sprouts and this is now in the rotatation. Thank you!
Made pretty much as is. The cucumbers were a good add to Brussels sprouts but I think it use something else, maybe bacon bits
Made twice once with cucumbers and once with zucchini and prefer the zucchini with the brussel sprouts. Used two large cubes of chicken bouillon which is slightly more than two tsp. Which gives the sauce a stronger taste which I like and probably a teaspoon of franks hot sauce. Husband loved it.
We were drinking this béchamel sauce in the end! I did make adjustments for our dietary lifestyle (and I just didn't want cucumbers in it - added onion instead) but followed the method and measurements and this is the best béchamel I've ever made. I will use this recipe all the time! Tonight it was broccoli and cauliflower and it was scrumptious! Funny, I thought the ratio of butter/flour was off, but it turned out I was off; this was perfect and the way I'll do it from now on!
I cut this recipe in half and was enough for hubby and I with just a bit left over (tomorrow's snack). This is a delicious change for brussel sprouts! Who knew cucumbers could be cooked, not I! Will be making this again. And, as one review already stated, I added a few shakes of garlic powder.
