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.

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!

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 chicke...
