I made this for Thanksgiving without the cream ... it was fantastic. The combination of fresh chanterelle mushrooms and roasted brussel sprouts was perfect. I could see how cream could make it even more sumptuous, but there is so much other rich food at the holidays and it was good to have something healthy and tasty that wasn't overloaded with cream and fat.
This is a delicious recipe. I served it over spaghetti squash for a vegetarian meal. My husband loved it.
This is a very good recipe. It is not hard to make and is very good and a nice change from traditional side dishes. One minor issue is that it can be somewhat hard to get dried wild mushrooms rehydrated, so they can end up having a pretty woody texture (not nice!). So, I would consider trying to use fresh mushrooms if at all possible or soaking the dried mushrooms for quite a while.
I made this dish for Thanksgiving last year and it was delicious. I added toasted breadcrumbs as an afterthought and they really pulled the dish together.
Delicious and easy!!! Prepared the sprouts, shallots and mushrooms before company arrived and then followed the cooking directions dish between sharing wine with friends - turned out beautifully and was a crowd pleaser!
This dish was delicious!
totally awesome!!!! I used almond milk and no butter to make it dairy free. yummy
THE best brussels sprouts recipe ever! I followed the recipe exactly. Couldn't be happier! Might try less cream or half-and-half next time, but really, this recipe is fabulous as written!
Wonderful! I followed the advice about using less cream--it was a good choice. Extra cream definitely not needed. Will make this again.
This recipe is fantastic!
I made it for a Thanksgiving dinner we hosted (in Canada, Thanksgiving is the 2nd Monday in October) and was asked to make it for a 2nd dinner later that month. One diner stated that he had never eaten more brussels sprouts in his life! The colour of the fresh chanterelles was a perfect foil for the deep green of the sprouts that resulted from roasting.
A rich, luxurious side dish.
This is my new favorite brussels sprout recipe. Since you can roast the sprouts and saute the mushrooms in advance, it makes for a great portable dish that can quickly finished at a dinner party. Look for 1 pound packages of chanterelles at Costco for a reasonable price on wild mushrooms.
The best Brussels sprouts recipe I've made.
These roasted brussel sprouts are much more delicious than boiled or steamed, the flavor here was concentrated and sprouts tender; the very best way to cook them (except maybe on the grill?). Really so good, they didn't need the cream. I had to cover the sprouts with foil at the end, when a few began to char. Rotating the dish would help. I'd make this again but definitely omit the cream sauce.
My husband and I absolutely loved this recipe. It will become a staple side dish in our home. 2 minor changes: I roasted the brussels sprouts on 450 for only 15-18mins and used light cream instead of heavy cream. PERFECT!
Excellent Side dish.
Changed to a leek for a little more flavor.
Will make this one of my regulars.
BTW I increased the wine to 1/2 cup and reduced the amount of Olive oil.
