This DELICIOUS recipe is courtesy of Rachael Ray. I tried it out for Thanksgiving,years ago.. and it was met with much skepticism from the non-adventurous eaters in the family... but it soon became a STAPLE at the holiday table. Now I have to make it even if I don't want to.LOL. Brussel sprouts acquired quite a few new fans that year. ;)
