"I really do love my sprouts! I have tried all sorts of cooking ways with them and love each and every way. Lately I have gone back to the way I was served them as a kid, with a small difference to the way my mother cooked them. This bought back memories and did not disappoint. I have made this a few times lately and the last time added 1 teaspoon of cheddar cheese (wiz) spread to the microwave step.....YUMMY."

The mashed sprouts take on a whole new dimension, lovely flavour & appearance. They are a perfect companion with ham. I am not too fond of sprouts but I loved this recipe.
