I decided to experiment with this recipe. I thought this would be great for Christmas Eve dinner but I have to work Christmas Eve until 2. So I decided to try this recipe ahead of time to see what would happen. So I roasted the Brussels sprouts a day ahead and also made the sauce the day before. I must first add that I followed the ingredients and most of the instructions exactly as written. I prepared the Brussels sprouts exactly as written and put them in a casserole dish after they were roasted, covered with saran wrap. Then I made the sauce exactly as written except after it began to boil I put it into a container and put it into the fridge, I did not let it reduce by half. The next day when I was ready to try my experiment I put the Brussels sprouts into oven at 325 because I was roasting a chicken, and let them heat up in oven for about 15 min, meanwhile I put the prepared sauce in a sauce pan and let it heat up. When the chicken was done and the Brussels sprouts were hot I poured the sauce over them and mixed the sauce and Brussels sprouts together. (Oh sorry, I forgot I doubled the cooked bacon and made sure to cook it until crisp) (I have bacon lovers) I left a few teaspoons of bacon grease in pan when sautéing the onion and mushroom and garlic. I could not believe how good this turned out. I will be making this for Christmas Eve 2013 thanks to your great recipe and my experiment. Thank You !!!!!!!!!!!!!
