  1. This recipe is AMAZING! I have just recently discovered brussels sprouts (I know) and cannot find many ways to cook them, but this gives them a totally different taste! Thanks for the idea! Great blog.

    • Thanks Nicole! Speaking of Brussels sprouts I chopped some up last night and mixed it with Sicilian chicken sausage, mushrooms, mozzarella and a bit of olive oil and topped them on pizza dough to make a home-made pizza. Thank you for the compliment and I’m glad you discovered the Brussels sprout!
