Browning butter brings out a mellow nuttiness that complements the strong flavor of the sprouts. Browned butter can be an excellent flavor addition to any sauté. Source: EatingWell Magazine, October/November 2006

Thanks EatingWell! Husband Now Likes Brussels Sprouts! This really makes the best of a fresh seasonal veggie. Furthermore it's simple (ie. non-intimidating) enough for my husband to make himself and that converted his thinking on Brussels sprouts. He's long been a hater but now he likes them. We do it with walnuts which are always on hand and it's still amazing. Pros: Quick easy so tasty good for fresh Cons: Not for you if you prefer to 'hide' vegetables in dishes Read More

Everyone I know loves this Brussels Sprouts recipe even those who profess to not like Brussels Sprouts! But of course like every just about Eating Well vegetable recipe I use a LOT more butter (or heavy cream) than specified in the original recipe. Anna San Diego CA Read More

I have been trying to find recipes to get my 5 year old to eat more veggies and he LOVED these. He went so far as to ask me to save some for his lunch at school the next day. I'll be making these a lot from now on! Read More

Excellent and easy. This one moves to high rotation in the fall. I find that the 1T of butter browns quicker than the recipe states in my oven. Read More

I followed the recipe exactly however they came out more dry however the flavoring with hazelnuts and butter are good. Next time I will at least double the amount of butter the recipe calls for to make sure it doesn't dry out the brussel sprouts while roasting in the oven. Read More
