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.
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.
I thought this was "different", JUST like me! AND is a HEALTHY recipe! LOVE combination, did make for a good taste, TRUE! Used rindless bacon pieces, didn't pre cook, just added to the final outcome of the dish too! So thank you for me to YOU! For a "healthy", nutritious side dish that didn't overpower and was not overwhelming to make too! THANKS!

I've just returned to the States after living in Japan for 2 years and am undergoing some major life changes. It's great to be able to buy good coffee, licorice and tortillas again! <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/untitled.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"><img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/projects/200_PACpic.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"><img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/projects/pacbanner.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> Ratings: I often give 4 or 5 star ratings, but I usually only try recipes that I know I'll like. 5 Stars - it was fantastic and I wouldn't change a thing. 4 stars - it's a very good recipe, will make again but changed it just a little. 3 stars - it was an okay recipe, but there were things I'd definitely change if I made it again. 2 stars - the recipe really didn't impress us much (by us I mean the hubby and myself) 1 star - there might have been something wrong with the recipe posting to begin with, because it was a complete failure (I haven't had any of these!)
