This recipe is right on target for roasting Brussels sprouts. I'm still learning to like this popular vegetable but it's not really high on my favorites list yet. The glaze is nice and the bison bacon is really different. It's not exactly bacon but it is a good alternative health-wise and it adds texture to the dish. Read More

I just didn't care for this. By the time the sprouts were tender they were pretty charred. Don't need to make them again. Read More

This was very good. If you haven't tried Bison yet what are you waiting for? I have made a recipe similar to this one that calls for Pancetta instead of Bison Bacon. I'm happy to say that I liked this even better. I did want a bit more salt & pepper on top but that's just me. These were yummy and I'll be making them again. Kudos to the Bison Council for sharing a great dish. Read More

I made this for our Christmas dinner. The only difference is that I used pancetta for my bacon. There was nothing left. Read More

this was shockingly good. I just used normal bacon and it was fantastic. Even my kids who don't like these brussel sprouts actually ate it. Read More
