I've never tried brussels spouts before and glad I picked your recipe to try. This was very good. I was even eating it cold out of the refrigerator later that night. A keeper for sure. I will be making this a lot.

I love brussel sprouts, so this recipe was fine for me without the sauce. But the sauce solidifed, and didn't cover the brussel sprouts..it turned into a hard caramel like substance. I followed the directions, allowing the bacon grease to cool before mixing with the flour, etc. But the sauce didn't work for me. I did try to put the sauce on the brussel sprouts and sprinkled the bacon bits on them. Next time I will copy Boomette and try the sauce in the microwave.

I did the sauce in the microwave and decided not to add the flour LOL I made it after dinner, so for the photo I didn't use pecans. Probably tonight we'll add toasted pecans. I didn't add salt when cooking the brussels sprouts. I loved the taste of the sauce with the brussels sprouts. Thanks DuChick. Made for 123 hit wonders.
