If you use fresh brussels sprouts, and cut them into 1/4's and stir fry them in a little olive oil (or your preferred oil)instead of boiling then continue with the rest of the recipe instructions, it's even better.

This is a really good, healthy side dish! I steamed fresh brussels sprouts, which I think makes a big difference. For the sauce, I used light margarine and cut the brown sugar to 2 tablespoons. Also cooked it in a saucepan instead of the microwave, which eliminated the grainy texture some others encountered. I definitely recommend cutting the sprouts in half before coating with the sauce. It allows the flavor to soak in.

Pretty good and tasty, but a bit too sugary. Believe it or not, a little bit of water helps the sauce come together if the sugar and butter don't come together. It tasted a lot better the second day. 5-stars for leftovers!
