I could NOT stop eating these! I know the flavors may be strong for some people, but I thought they were awesome. I used blue cheese, and these went fast at our house. I wasn't sure whether to place the sprouts cheese side down or cheese side up, so I did some both ways. The ones with the cheese side up were definitely better. I will probably skip the saly step next time -- between the bacon and blue cheese the salt seemed a little much. Thanks for sharing this great recipe, Erin!
