My mom gave me a taste of this recipe and after never having previously liked Brussels sprouts, I was hooked and begged her for the recipe!

I prefer Brussel Sprouts roasted and did that for this dish. I roasted the sprouts, slices of onion and slices of garlic tossed in the olive oil seasoned with sea salt and cracked black pepper at 375 till done. After roasting I tossed with balsamic vinegar, butter and used garlic powder to taste. I enjoyed it cooled down to room temp and liked the leftovers even more the next day after they chilled overnight. I'll make this again for sure! (recipe made for *RECIPE GROUP*)

pretty good! I followed Linda's review and roasted the sprouts and onions. I undercooked them a bit and they were delicious.

I prefer to add the seasonings in at the beginning...to cook off all the bacteria and increase the flavor. I knew the dish would be a bit bland to me, so I added a half teaspoon powdered mustard and a half teaspoon of cumin. Also---I always add lemon-juice into anything that browns, one tablespoon works well enough for most dishes. Then the end image wont look as bad as the photograph pictured. In the end...the dish was too vinegary for my taste-buds, so I drained it and tossed some parmesan and romano cheese on top. Now, I like it! When I make this again, I'm going to use half the vinegar.
