    Mommy Diva's Note:

    This is the ONLY way I can get the rest of my household to eat brussels sprouts (I think I am the ONLY one who loves these things). ;) Great for a quick work night side dish - easy and healthy too. Sometimes I add Johnny's Salad Elegance, but usually the straight-forward simple recipe does it best on this one for the kids.

      I steamed the brussels sprouts and then added the cheese and melted in the microwave. It was great. Simple but very good. Thanks Chelle :) Made for your cook-a-thon :)

      I can only imagine how easy this would be if you had a microwave. I don't have room in my small kitchen for one. I steamed the sprouts instead. Nice, clean taste. I usually load up on butter, but I didn't miss it with this recipe. Thanks Mommy Diva and Fight like a Girl! Hugs

      We love brussel sprouts and this was such an easy recipe I had to try. We liked it, but prefer the regular buttered with salt and pepper. However, they were gone by the end of our meal, so I will repeat this recipe, its nice for variety. THank you for sharing this easy recipe.
