We use the bacon grease w/ the olive (or coconut oil we had on hand) and then saute brussels sprouts. Very good & will make again. Read More

Well I wouldn't say I hated it but didn't love it either! I did use 1 onion & about 9 pieces of turkey bacon. Than again I am not a Brussels Sprouts kind of person! Read More

Just a short note from the author that in my original submission there was no olive oil. Just use a small amount of the bacon grease and also add salt and pepper to taste. Thanks for trying it! Read More

This did turn out pretty tasty although I did change it up a bit. I halved the bacon and I just used the bacon grease instead of the olive oil. I also added a clove of garlic....Honestly I can't cook without it:) Read More

I enjoy this recipe however... I ended up making a few changes to make it spectacular. The second time around I used a pat of butter chicken broth and a clove of garlic minced. Even people that don't like Brussel sprouts loved it. Caramelizing the brussel sprouts changes the flavor slightly. Yum! Read More

This was delicious! My family didn't think they liked brussel sprouts but these were a hit at Christmas Eve dinner. I did make one addition to the recipe. I added a bit of brown sugar to them. I knew the kids would like them better that way and they were very good. I didn't use a lot just a bit for a subtle sweetness. Thanks for a great recipe that I will make again and again! Read More

Any vegetable cooked with bacon already has great potential in my book. I used fresh Brussels sprouts added minced garlic and cooked them only until crisp-tender not browned. Loved the flavor as well as the vibrant color. Read More

We're big brussel sprout eaters and this was a nice change. Added a few seasonings but used fresh sprouts which I steamed first. Delicious and thank you! Read More

We absolutely loved this recipe for brussels. Did not change a thing and everyone said they did not like brussels but they all wanted the recipe for them before leaving the house. Thank you for sharing with us. Read More

I love sprouts in general but stir fried is a favorite in our house. This was a tasty recipe. Rather than cook the sprouts before hand I added them raw to the bacon and added a little chicken stock. Turned out great. Read More
