Amazing Creamy Brussels Sprouts

Creamed brussels sprouts side dish

I think I may have found the perfect recipe for these things. My kids went from rejecting them every time to eating them like candy after trying this dish!

When I mention Brussels sprouts most everyone I know contorts their faces in such a way that demonstrates disgust. That is, until they try this recipe. Even people that have hated Brussels sprouts their entire lives admit that they’re one of their beloved vegetables now. My kids eat them like candy!

This is the type of dish that’s perfect to take to a holiday get-together (hint: Easter’s coming up). You can prepare beforehand, put it in a covered dish, and reheat it in the oven when you get to your mother-in-law’s house.

Growing Brussels sprouts requires cool weather. They can be planted in early spring, or mid-to-late summer for a crop that matures in the fall. The small heads mature best in cool and even in light frosty weather. Like most vegetables, Brussels sprouts need a minimum of 6 hours of sunlight daily; more is better. They like fertile, well-drained, moist soils with plenty of organic matter. The soil pH should be on the high side of the range for vegetables, about 6.8, for optimum growth and to discourage clubroot disease. To be sure about pH, get the soil tested.

    what is boiling whiping cream

      Hi Debbie! So glad you are here. It’s just whipping cream that is very hot. It doesn’t have to be boiling, but needs to be very hot. You can get it hot in the microwave. The cream needs to be hot because if it is cold, it will cool down the cooking sprouts. They need to continue to cook for a while longer after you put the cream in the casserole. Hope you give them a try!

  2. I do NOT like Brussel Sprouts, but guess what? I would absolutely eat these. Yum!
