This is so good. I made it a few years ago when Brussels sprouts were available in my local stores. When I found some really fresh Brussels sprouts locally the weekend before Thanksgiving, I remembered this recipe. I followed the recipe since it was a special day - next time I might try using canned evaporated milk instead of the whipping cream. It was a very popular dish at Thanksgiving.

I also used fat-free evaporated milk instead of whip cream and it worked well! I will definitely make this again.
