If you use fresh brussels sprouts, and cut them into 1/4's and stir fry them in a little olive oil (or your preferred oil)instead of boiling then continue with the rest of the recipe instruction...

I love brussels sprouts. What I didn't like about this recipe was the allspice and the nutmeg. I think I would have enjoyed it more with the butter and brown sugar only with some salt. Thanks...

This is a really good, healthy side dish! I steamed fresh brussels sprouts, which I think makes a big difference. For the sauce, I used light margarine and cut the brown sugar to 2 tablespoons. ...

I made this for Christmas dinner and it was a huge hit. Evereyone raved how good they were. I'll definitely use again.

Pretty yummy! I didn't add the walnuts, because I hate nuts, but the butter/brown sugar combo was nice. My only complaint was that when I melted the 2 together in the microwave, all the butter...

These are delish! I used cashews b/c it's all I had, and only a tiny dash of allspice (no nutmeg), and we loved it! My 8 yr old son kept asking for more!
