Ugh...made this for Thanksgiving and actually threw it away after dinner as it was hardly touched by dinner guests. Smelled awful while cooking and worse when served. I followed the recipe to a "T" and would not make it again if someone paid me.

This is a DELICIOUS recipe. I am constantly asked to either make it or share the recipe. It has become a staple at our Thanksgiving table. A food processor can make quick work of shredding the brussel sprouts. Also, many grocery stores (such as Trader Joe's) have pre-shredded brussel sprouts in a bag.

This tastes like sour kraut meets down home-deep southern cookin'. Frankly, this recipe uses too much bacon fat as the apples got mushy from being sauteed in the bacon fat. The bacon hides the brussel sprout flavor but, all in all, I felt this recipe was taking otherwise healthy ingredients (apples, shallots and brussel sprouts) and tainting it with bacon fat. If I were to do it again, I might use vegetable oil and use something less fat like minced smoked ham to substitute for the bacon.

Excellent recipe! I have been looking for this recipe to make for Thanksgiving. Made this 2 years ago and everyone LOVED it...even those that do not like brussels sprouts!

This recipe was delicious!! I have made this the past two years for Thanksgiving and it is a huge hit. My 3 year old nephew even LOVED it (especially the bacon). This is a little time consuming, but well worth it! It has been a great addition to our Thanksgiving meal and I don't see it coming off the menu anytime soon! PS I did add extra parmesan…a little extra cheese never hurts:). AND…this is my first review ever, but I thought this recipe deserved a 5 star rating so I had to comment!
