This is a simple yet delicious recipe that takes little time to put together. It's a tasty way to incorporate a healthy, and often snubbed, vegetable into one's diet. I've been cooking Brussels sprouts this way for years. I'm not sure where I got the recipe. Using fresh Brussels sprouts is preferred naturally, but if not readily available, frozen Brussels sprouts may be used instead. If using frozen Brussels sprouts, you may have to drain any excess liquid that is rendered while cooking the sprouts.

Always a favorite in my house. Here are my changes, my sprouts were so big, I quartered them, I sliced the bacon prior to cooking it and sautéed it with the onion. When it was 3/4 of the way done, I added the brussel sprouts, covered and let it all cook till done. So good, served it with Becca's Accidental Fish and steamed white rice. Read More

I love bacon and brussel sprouts so just wanted to see how others prepared it. Garlic seems a natural addition just wondering why it wasn't included in the directions.?? Read More

Can't go wrong with Brussels sprouts bacon and garlic and as this recipe's first reviewer I'm happy to report that experienced and novice cooks alike can prepare this with confidence as the submitter has the preparation down pat. (Forgot to sprinkle these with the Parmesan. Too bad I really would have liked that!) Read More

Great recipe! Disappeared quickly from the dinner table. It took a bit longer for me to get the brussel sprouts to brown then the recipe said but otherwise I kept everything the same. Read More

A group of my friends planned a grownup girls PJ party. We intended to introduce one of the ladies to a variety of veggie dishes in hopes of encouraging her to take pleasure in eating them. It was kind of a veggie eating intervention. Each of us brought a veggie dish. I had been wanting to try a Brussels sprout recipe I had but when the time came I couldn't find it. I made this recipe instead. It was a huge hit! All of the ladies went back for seconds & thirds. This recipe will convert even the most avid veggie hater. ENJOY Read More
