Didn't do it for us I've only ever had Brussels sprouts once before in a dish that tasted awful. However, because they're a healthy veg, was open to trying them. Well, this wasn't the redemption needed. We'll continue to be open, but won't make this again. Pros: Healthy Cons: Just didn't taste good

Absolutely fantastic dish .... looks great, tastes better I happen to love Brussels Sprouts and I'm always looking for interesting ways to prepare them. This is a super quick and easy method that really brings out the taste and delicate texture of the sprouts. No heavy cabbage taste. A really winner for my household. Pros: The lemon and caraway adds wonderful layers of subtle taste to the Brussels Sprouts, Cons: None

Delicious! My sister-in-law made this for our family Thanksgiving dinner this year and everyone loved them, including my 'I don't like brussel sprouts, husband. A light and delicious side dish!

I tried these for a family birthday celebration and everyone loved, including the 1-10 year olds. I served with a pork roast, homemade spaetzle, steamed cauliflower with breadcrumbs, orange-roasted carrots and homemade applesauce. Was actually fantastic and I heartily recommend. I sprinkled parmesan cheese on top before serving, which we liked.

These were fabulous! Even my brussel-sprout-wary husband and kids loved these. They would be even better with some chopped hazelnuts or pecans sprinkled on at the end for some nuttiness and crunch. But they were delicious as written.
