Yum Eating them right now. I should have made the bacon pieces smaller, but the taste is great and I love brussel sprouts that are not boiled to death!!!
I used butter to saute the onions and brussel sprouts. It took about 15 minutes to make the sprouts tender. It was very good.
This was very good. Makes a great side dish, looks wonderful on the plate and has a nice flavor. I will make again.
