Video Transcript:

This balsamic mustard glaze is an easy low calorie way to give your Brussels sprouts a whole new flavor. First heat a medium pan over medium heat and grease it with a tablespoon of margarine.

Next you’re going to add chopped Brussels sprouts. Stir them around to coat them with the margarine. Keep them moving around in the pan until they get golden brown around the edges.

Once they get brown around the edges you’re going to add a teaspoon of balsamic vinegar and one and a half teaspoons of stone ground mustard. You can use Dijon if you’d like too. Mix them around to evenly spread the mustard and the balsamic vinegar. Add a few cracks of black pepper to taste and then they should be ready pretty quickly.

Today we’ve paired our Brussels sprouts with the meatloaf and mashed potatoes. To make the meatloaf and mashed potatoes first take it out of the box. Peel back the corner of the lid about an inch. Put it in the microwave for about a minute to a minute and a half. Take it out of the microwave, take the cover off and you’re ready to go.
