Spiced Brussels Sprouts Canapes

Brussels Sprouts have a tendency to divide opinions, rather like marmite…people either love it or they don’t. 

However, if you add some spice to your Brussels Sprouts this festive season, I can guarantee you there will be some converts to the loving brussels sprouts side!
