This was an excellent side dish to our Thanksgiving, and it was so easy to make. I doubled it, using 2 lbs. of Brussels sprouts (I wasn't sure how much 4 pints of sprouts was, but 2 lbs. was perfect for a doubled recipe). I prepped the sprouts while the bacon was roasting, and prepped the apples (I used 2 honeycrisp apples) while the sprouts were roasting. Leftovers also reheat well. I found that the doubled recipe easily served about 8 or 9 people as a side dish. Thanks for posting this great recipe.

My favorite BS recipe, hands down! Every time I make it, I buy more sprouts, because my husband never leaves any leftovers. I double the recipe and he still doesn't leave any leftovers. The most time is spent preparing the sprouts, but then it goes together very quickly. When we have this, it's all we eat for dinner. Yumm! Have it in the oven right now.

My family loved this recipe and they do not like brussels sprouts. I was not sure about the red wine vinegar but went ahead with it and was not disappointed. I stirred the sprouts in with the bacon instead of layering and I omitted the salt and pepper.
