I hate to admit it, but I have never tried brussel sprouts.
They just didn't sound that good to me.
UNTIL my daughter made this dish for Christmas.
I could have eaten the whole thing myself. I sure have wasted alot of time all these years not eating brussel sprouts. They are delicious in this casserole. So cheesy, with a bit of a crunch from the toasted bread crumbs on top, they are now at the top of my vegetable list!
