    Not one bite left after an office holiday dinner! Several requests for the recipe. I subbed toasted pecans for hazelnuts. This is a good recipe for those who like sprouts as well as those who don't. What isn't better with bacon and nuts?! Have made several times since the first--it's becoming a favorite with family & friends.

    I make this every Thanksgiving... it's amazing. Every friend we have had over for Thanksgiving has asked me for the recipe. Now they are all making it a Thanksgiving tradition too!!!

    This has become a favorite with our family. Even the picky teenagers and adults who say they don't like Brussels Sprouts love this dish. I first made it for Thanksgiving in 2006 with hazelnuts I brought home from Sicily, but it is easy enough to serve anytime. I will continue to make it with whatever nuts I have on hand.

    Both family and guests really enjoy this dish. I usually serve with a meat dish - good with meatloaf and pork tenderloin. Made this on several occasions, with roasted almonds every time - I use the bagged salad ones. Perhaps it's even more delicious with hazelnuts! Good even without the bacon. And really... how many people LOVE whole b sprouts? But this is a really yummy and healthy way to enjoy all their goodness.

    This recipe will make you a Brussels sprouts eater, which I wasn't until I tried this. Yummy!

    I love Brussels sprouts, and thi recipe just doesn't do anything for me. There are just much better ways to prepare Brussels sprouts. I like shredding them, but the bacon and hazelnuts flavors don't marry well.
