      I made a diabetic friendly version of this recipe. I skipped the real bacon (yes, I know very important to this dish). I cooked the sprouts, I had tiny baby ones that didn't need cutting in a small amount of water with the onion. The peas were added just before the sprouts were tender. The sprouts, onion and peas were topped with Baco's and it made a very nice veggie that was enjoyed very much.
