My Five year old son LOVES brussel sprouts, so much, that I have to make this dish at least twice a week :) It goes great with meatloaf, and pork roast.

I am among the few, who are blessed to have a child that loves veggies and fruits !!! And if my son is going to begg for brussel sprouts, well.... I'm going to give him, Cheesy Brussel Sprouts!!!


Enjoy!
