Bacon and Brown Sugar Brussel Sprouts

Bacon and Brown Sugar Brussel Sprouts

When we were growing up we hated Brussel sprouts and no wonder why. These little baby green cabbages were always prepared boiled and tasteless. Fast forward to today where we simply roast them instead of boiling them. Now we have another green vegetable that can be added to our favorites list. Kick them up using this recipe with bacon and brown sugar and you will want to scarf down the whole plate!
