I loved the bacon with the sprouts but the mushrooms were too moist for my taste. So next time I'll cook the mushrooms under brown and then add the chicken stock. Thanks Bonnette :) Made for Cookbook tag game

Really enjoyed the flavors together. I thought this was wonderful and have never cooked fresh brussel sprouts. I picked smaller sprouts and the cooking time for tender crisp. Thank you for posting and will make again.

This is a great husband and I both loved it. We have tried other recipes with brussels sprouts and this one is by far the best one we have had!!
