I made this dish with a baked ham for our family with 6 children, ages 12 to 1-1/2. They all enjoyed it and there wasn't a leftover sprout to put in the frig. It was very easy to put together and I will definitely make it again. I have passed on the recipe to several friends and put it into my recipe box...it is a keeper. Thank you for make Brussels sprouts into a dish that even the children love. Happy Thanksgiving and God bless America. Sincerely, Barbara
