Brussels & Bacon

Brussels & Bacon

Most things green are seen as the “enemy” from an early age, but Brussels sprouts get the reputation of being extra-yucky. As we get older, some begin to appreciate the small, green vegetable, but others still keep a safe distance.

So when I found this recipe for Brussels sprouts with bacon and garlic, I was sold. Put bacon and garlic on and I’ll give it a try!
