Easy and popular, every time I've made this, I've converted Brussels-sprouts-haters. Served with Thanksgiving turkey, it was the must-have dish and recipe of the potluck. Seriously, I have to divide this into portions as soon as I finish it, because I will eat all of it in one sitting.
Brussels Sprouts with Crispy Bacon and Shallots
It's funny how we are all raised with food prejudices. My parents told me Brussels sprouts were awful, so I assumed they were! Then I had them for the first time prepared like this, and I was in heaven. And guess what? So were my kids. Loaded with bits of crispy bacon and shallots, they're sweet and caramelized and everything you could ask for in a side dish. Give this underrated vegetable a try–you just might change your mind, too.
