    Great recipe for Brussels Sprouts and Bacon. My wife who is not a fan of Brussels Sprouts tried this after I made it. Not only did she have an initial serving, but had a second! This speaks volumes on how we liked it.

    made this with left over ham steak and as others have suggested, I cooked the mushrooms a bit longer in bacon fat. (Everything is always better in bacon fat) Thanks for the reicpe!

    This is delicious as written - although I can see some red pepper flakes kicking it up a notch. I used thick applewood smoked bacon and a full sweet onion and a half pound of mushrooms. One reviewer said the mushrooms were a little moist for her liking so I gave them a few extra minutes in the bacon fat. YUM this is an excellent main dish or side dish to.... anything. Going in the box for sure!

    I loved the bacon with the sprouts but the mushrooms were too moist for my taste. So next time I'll cook the mushrooms under brown and then add the chicken stock. Thanks Bonnette :) Made for Cookbook tag game

    Really enjoyed the flavors together. I thought this was wonderful and have never cooked fresh brussel sprouts. I picked smaller sprouts and the cooking time for tender crisp. Thank you for posting and will make again.


I have two boys Eddie 18 and Brandon 10. I have been with my hubby for 16 years. I work full time outside the home and my boys keep me busy at home. Eddie is a singer and base guitar player in a band and Brandon races go karts. We also have a Collie/Beagle mix named Sugar. I love to cook and try out new recipes. My family likes it too but at times ask my to make just "normal" food, as I forget sometimes to make my own TNT recipes. I cook a lot with with my crock pot as it makes life a lot easier for me. I am always on the look out for new crock pot recipes. I'm not much of a baker as I don't like to measure things. I collect cookbooks and recipes in general. I usually start with a recipe and tweak to my families liking. My Rating System: 5 Stars = The whole family enjoyed the dish and it will be added to my TNT cookbook. Book #220911. These recipes will be made again and again. 4 Stars = Recipe was good, but needed some modifications or it was good but not something we would want on a regular basis. Also goes into my TNT-4 star recipe cookbook. Book #220912 3 Stars = It was edible, but won't be made again. 2 Stars = Needs some kind of major adjustments. 1 Stars = Inedible, didn't work, waste of ingredients.
