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!

Ingredients

1 lb
brussels sprouts, trimmed and scored
2 Tbsp
butter
2 Tbsp
flour
1/8 tsp
salt
1/8 tsp
pepper
1 c
milk
2 1/2 c
cubed velveeta cheese

Step-By-Step

1Remove any discolored or loose outer leaves from the brussels sprouts.
2Cut the tough part of the stem off the brussels sprouts with a paring knife, but avoid cutting the leaves to prevent them from falling off during cooking
3Bring a saucepan of water to a boil;
reduce heat to medium-low
4Cook the sprouts for 10 minutes. Drain, and set aside.
5Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat and stir in the flour, salt, and pepper. Cook the mixture until it turns a slight tan color, about 1 minute; whisk in the milk. Bring to a simmer, whisking constantly, and cook until thickened, about 2 minutes. Stir in velveeta cheese until the cheese has melted and the sauce is thick and smooth. Transfer the Brussels sprouts into the sauce, stirring to coat
