Bacon and Onion Brussel Sprouts

I can’t believe it’s about to be Thanksgiving!  Every year I like to throw in a new recipe. I decided to give this bacon and onion brussel sprouts recipe a dry run in case I wanted to change it a bit. Veggies are always a hard topic in our house I have a very picky kid and husband. I’m not so picky with veggies and I have to say that brussel sprouts get a really bad rap! I had them cooked with bacon and onion at a local restaurant and fell in love with them. I wanted to recreate it at home and here is what I came up with. 

Bacon and Onion make this brussel sprout recipe one your family will love. Hate brussel sprouts you have to try these! These brussel sprouts were so crispy and flavorful. The salt and sweet really gives them a great flavor and takes away that bitter cabbage taste that turns some people off.

    Brussel sprouts are a family favorite…at least four of us fight over the last spoonful :-)I don't add onions in mine but chopped apples before we roast them with the bacon. So good!

    These look GOOD! We love brussel sprouts. I usually do roasted with balsamic and honey but the bacon sounds great too, we will have to switch it up. My favorite Thanksgiving dish is sweet potatoes NOT with marshmallows but with spiced pecans and brown sugar on top yum.Stephswtboutique.blogspot.com
