    I always roast my Brussels but this sounded so different i had to try it. Wow, what flavor. I thought the mustard would be overpowering but all the flavors blended so well it wasn't. Yum

    My husband loves, loves loves Brussel Sprouts. Me....not so much. So, I am always looking for Brussel Sprout recipes. This one was great! Easy to make and flavorful. Don't leave out the tarragon! It elevates the sauce!

    Very delicious. I don't usually like brussel sprouts. But with this recipe, I will be eating them a lot more.
