Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Place Brussels sprouts in a pot with enough lightly salted water to cover. Bring to a boil, and cook 5 minutes, or until tender.
  3. Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Place cucumbers in the skillet, and cook 5 minutes, until tender. Set aside cucumbers, and mix the flour into the butter to form a roux. Mix in the milk, bouillon, and pepper, and cook 2 minutes, stirring constantly, until thickened.
  4. In a baking dish, mix the Brussels sprouts and cucumbers. Drizzle with the butter sauce, and gently toss to coat.
  5. Cover, and bake 20 minutes in the preheated oven.

This was awesome! I made changes like many of us are prone to do. I used a 28oz bag of frozen brussel sprouts. I sliced my cucumber thinner, and added garlic and oregano to the saute. I thickened the roux with cornstarch as I was out of flour. Then I added a decent amount of hot sauce (Texas Pete). I covered everything with foil when I baked it so the sprouts were nice and soggy. Only 4 of 7 guests would try it (the others being fearful of brussel sprouts) and they loved it. I was going to send the leftovers home, but there was nothing to send. I will never make brussel sprouts any other way again.

mmmmmmmmmmmmmm.. very delicious. the only things i did differently was cut the cucumber in smaller pieces than as directed, but thats a personal preference, and i didnt have any chicken bouillon so i used two packets of the chicken flavoring from ramen noodles packets. lol. oh and i also put some chicken in there, cuz i had extra from another recipe i was making and someone wrote on here it lacked a little flavor so i tried it cuz chicken never hurt anything.. i think it wouldve been perfectly good without the chicken. very flavorful and good. i dont have the problem of some other reviewers of brussels sprouts. i

Yummy dish. I like very spicy food so to liven up the sauce I added cayenne pepper and cumin powder, it adds a nice flavor. I didn't have enough Brussels Sprouts so I added zucchini and it was just fine. This was my first time making a roux, if I make this again I'll let the roux brown a little bit longer. I feel there was still a bit of a "flour" after taste.
