Fantastic brussels sprouts! I used SteamFresh frozen brussels sprouts and had a side dish made in no time at all. This one will be for sure added to my favorites. Thanks Mikekey for another keeper! Made and reviewed for Susie's World Tour 2019 - Benelux.

Wonderful! We love Brussells sprouts and this is a great addition to our repertoire! I would never have thought to use lemon and mustard - but this really, really works. Can't wait to have them again!

This is now my favorite way to enjoy Brussels sprouts!! This is quick and easy to put together and company worthy too. I cut mine in half because they were very large. Thx for sharing this recipe here Mikekey :-)

We love brussels sprouts and use this recipe often - it's great!! Lemon and mustard are favorite family flavors. I had posted a similar recipe many years ago on another website, but included a crumb topping: Sautee 1 cup of bread crumbs in 2Tbsp butter until golden. Sprinkle over cooked brussels sprouts with lemon zest - enjoy!. Thanks Mikekey - so glad that you posted it here on Zazz!
