My DH always told me he hated brussels sprouts until he tasted these (must be the bacon and onions! :) ). From a December 1987 Bon Appetit magazine featuring a menu and recipes for a Fantasy Yuletide in Old Vienna.

This turned out great, even though I always have to leave out onion! Caraway seeds aren't too good for my IBS, so I didn't add them either, but it was really great! Thx for submitting!
