I've never made anything like this before and they were delicious. I brought them to a party and warmed them up in the oven and the outside was crispy and inside wasn't soggy. The instructions weren't the clearest, but I kept the brussel sprouts in halves and just coated a and cooked them that way. I will make these again!
