Brussels Sprouts With Applewood Bacon

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Maryland Jim

This recipe is from the Southern Living magazine. I made one change and used splenda brown sugar instead of regular sugar. Had it for Thanksgiving dinner and everyone loved it.

I cut this down for one serving, and I'm so sorry I did! I wanted more!! This is just delicious, and a recipe I'll be making often. I used regular brown sugar because I didn't have any splenda brown sugar substitute, but otherwise stuck to the recipe. Fabulous taste combination. Made for your Superbowl Football tag win! Thanks for sharing.
