Brussels Sprouts in Mustard Sauce

"The Brussels sprouts are cooked in chicken broth and therefore do not have the bitter aftertaste they have when cooked in water. My children love this recipe."

Wow! Yummy!! I actually didn't make this recipe on the stovetop. I roasted the brussels sprouts in the oven. They were carmelized and oh so good! Just put the brussels sprouts in a baking dish, almost cover them with broth (I used about 1/4 less than the recipe called for), bake for 20 minutes on 400. Remove them from the oven, take out the brussels sprouts and prepare the mustard sauce in the baking dish (since there is less broth, the sauce gets really creamy-yum!!), return the brussels sprouts to the dish and bake for about 10 minutes until the sauce reaches the right consistency. These were the best brussels sprouts I have ever had!!


My husband and I really enjoyed this recipe. Even my toddler ate them! The only change I made was to add less corn startch (based on reviews I'd read). Sauce was creamy and very flavorful. It was a great way to dress up often boring brussels. Will make again!


Yum! This is the best sauce ever and tastes great on the Brussels sprouts. I also use it on artichokes and asparagus. I put in 2 tablespoons of lemon juice instead of 2 teaspoons to suit my taste.
