  1. There are seriously SO GOOD! I will never make another Brussels sprouts recipe again (my husband has begged me to only ever make this from now on). My father in law, who said he hates Brussels sprouts, literally could not stop eating these at our Thanksgiving dinner. So so good!

  2. Test run tonight for thanksgiving…excellent!
    I’m going to add just a little more maple syrup but overall…fabulous!

  3. I made this for my Thanksgiving dinner table -and was a huge hit. We love it! Definitely keeping this recipe and will make this again. I might have added a new dish to our traditional playlist.

  4. I am getting off meat. What would you suggest to substitute for the bacon to give it the flavor?

  5. Made these and my guest loved them. Making again tonight, but have Pork in the oven so I’m putting them in 350 oven in another pan next to the pork for one hour. Hope they turn out okay. Wish I had two ovens.

  6. Such a great winter recipe! One has to try this one as it is simple to make and I’m sure, it will convince some non-sprout-eaters :).
