    GaylaJ's Note:

    I love Brussels sprouts and think they have an undeserved bad reputation with so many because they are often overcooked. (Cooking Brussels sprouts releases sulfur compounds; when overcooked, they develop an unpleasant sulfurous flavor and smell.) In this recipe, adapted from Eating Well (October/November 2006), a small amount of bacon goes a long way to impart its wonderful, smoky flavor to the sprouts.

      This is excellent! I used a 10 ounce bag of fresh shredded Brussels sprouts that Trader Joe's carries. I essentially halved the recipe but did use 2 slices of bacon, 2 tsp. dijon mustard, only about 1/4 cup of the water and white balsamic vinegar. I was having lasagna and I recently saw on "The Chew" that balsamic vinegar with a pasta dinner can help lower blood sugar spikes. Quick, easy and very yummy! Thanks for sharing-

      This is so much more pleasant than biting into a whole brussel sprout! Thanks for posting.

      Enjoyed this recipe, my only change was I like to incorporate bacon within the dish rather than a topping. I served it with pork chops and "home fried potatoes." Thanks
