- 1 pound 2 ounces (about 20) Brussels sprouts

Sit the steamer over a saucepan of boiling water and steam for 15 minutes, or until tender. Refresh under cold water to stop the cooking process.
Put the butter, mustard, and honey in a saucepan over low heat and stir to melt the butter. Add the sprouts and toss until well coated in the butter mixture and heated through. Pile onto a plate and serve immediately.
