WW Recipe of the Day: Slow Cooker Dijon Brussels Sprouts
(83 calories | *1 WW SmartPoint)
These simple slow cooker brussels sprouts are delicious. But, I’m biased. I love brussels sprouts. And Dijon mustard.
I fell in love with the Dijon mustard in Paris. It’s so much hotter than what you get here. More like the sinus clearing stuff in Chinese restaurants.
I brought a jar of this Amora Dijon Mustard home in my suitcase and have been telling Rod that it’s almost time to go back because it’s nearly empty. But I guess it will be cheaper and easier to buy a replacement on Amazon instead 🙂
As soon as I saw the recipe for these brussels sprouts with Dijon mustard in Fix-It and Forget-It New Cookbook: 250 New Delicious Slow Cooker Recipes I new I wanted to give them a try.
I’ve converted several brussels sprouts haters into lovers by introducing them to roasted brussels sprouts. So, I was curious how these slow cooker brussels sprouts would stack up.
Skinny on Slow Cooker Brussels Sprouts
To make them a little more Weight Watchers friendly, I substituted 1 tablespoon olive oil for the suggested 3 tablespoons butter. (One of the nice things about slow cooking, is the ability to cut back on fat, without compromising flavor.)
Quick and easy to prepare, tender and flavorful the eat, these slow cooker brussels sprouts are a delicious accompaniment to most any fall meal.
When I served them with slow cooker meatloaf and mashed potatoes, they were quickly gobbled up.
