This Brussels Sprouts with Bacon recipe is perfect for your fall celebrations!
Back in the day, Brussels sprouts were usually boiled and not very exciting. Nowadays, I have found many restaurants offering elevated versions of the dish and let me tell you, they can be a great updated side dish for your holiday celebrations (or even your casual dinners).
The most work intensive part about cooking Brussels sprouts is cleaning them, and it really is not too hard.
You can buy Brussels spouts on the stalk, but in most grocery stores, they are sold without the stalk. Rinsing them in cold water and removing some of the outer leaves will help to clean them for cooking.
They get a nice roasted flavor when you bake them in the oven with the bacon. These are great for your dinner side dish rotation or a special fall dinner. I would suggest trying this, especially if you have not had Brussels Sprouts in a few years.
