Cheesy Brussel Sprouts

Elizabeth Lancaster


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!!!

How to Make Cheesy Brussel Sprouts


  1. Remove any discolored or loose outer leaves from the brussels sprouts.
  2. Cut 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
  3. Bring a saucepan of water to a boil;
    reduce heat to medium-low
  4. Cook the sprouts for 10 minutes. Drain, and set aside.
  5. Melt 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
