    westtextazzy's Note:

    This recipe is from my Grandma Burk who sugar coated veggies so that we kids would eat them. I loved these growing up and I love them now. A special (kinda) sweet sauce with bacon makes those sprouts sublime.

      This was a great way of preparing Brussels sprouts. The bacon was a great addition to the sauce, but the vinegar was too overpowering. Next time, I'll definitely reduce that, or maybe even leave it out altogether because the vinegar didn't mesh well with the salty elements from the bacon. But otherwise, the sauce made the Brussels sprouts much more enjoyable. Made for Football Pool 2013.

      Yummy way to prepare Brussels sprouts! I love them anyway and really enjoyed this version. I did add some salt and pepper to the sauce, otherwise made as directed. I liked the tangy sweet/sour/salty coating this put on the sprouts. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

      Made for your Wk 10 *Football Pool* win, my bet is most who dislike brussels sprouts will enjoy these tasty sprouts. While I did not time myself, I am pretty sure the prep did not take me near 60 min. My only issue was w/the 3 oz serv size ~ not enough for us. I see the recipe serving 6 w/5 oz servings & it will still be low-fat + low cal. Thx for sharing this recipe from your Grandma w/us & Congrats on your FB pool win. :-)
