  1. I have never, ever, left a comment anywhere, I can’t usually be bothered but 1. I flippin LOVE the Batch Lady and 2. I’ve just made this and it’s AMAZING….I made it to freeze for Christmas but I seriously don’t think it’ll last that long, I was eating it by the spoonful straight from the frying pan 🙂 Omg it’s soooooo good, forget Christmas, I’m gunna be cooking this all year round. Smashed it again, thank you Batch Lady 🙂 x

    1. Thank you Laura, that is so lovely to hear! They are fab arent they, my fave! x

  2. First time making any veg for Christmas. At 29 years old I’m a bit late to the game! I am so glad I found the Batch Lady. I was nervous with timings so prepping and freezing stuff in advance gave me some comfort that I wouldn’t be under too much pressure on the day. These brussel sprouts went down sooooo well. I was told by my sister in law these were the nicest sprouts she ever had which was amazing feedback to get! Will definitely make these again next year!!

  3. I would love to try this however we don’t have a microwave. How would I reheat on Christmas Day? Many thanks, Lucy

  4. I’ve just batched this up ready for Christmas this year. I was not the biggest fan or brussels I must admit however – I had a little sample and can confirm I have been converted to Brussels sprouts! This recipe tastes insane!! The combination of textures just adds to how amazing it tastes, I cannot wait to dish it out to the rest of the family in a few weeks time!

  5. I’m on sprouts this year and will be making them today in advance of Christmas on Sunday 🎉🎉 batch lady for the win!!
