Gretchen's Brussels Sprouts

"This recipe was made by my sister's sister-in-law for a dinner at Christmas time several years ago. My sister made it for a celebration and now every Christmas I make the dish because I have the best access to fresh Brussels sprouts. "

    Great way to serve Brussel Sprouts, even to some of my family who don't like them

    This was really good. I cut the recipe down, using 3 slices of bacon and about 6 brussels sprouts. I needed to add a couple of TBS of water to "help" them cook a little better because it didn't quite enough bacon grease. and to soften them a little more. I didn't have any pine nuts. The nutmeg gave them a nice flavor. I will be making these again. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

    I made these for Christmas and they were SUPERB! My family said that they just took some to be polite but they ended up really loving them and all asked for the recipe. Truly a winner!

    Sorry, found some of the other brussel sprout recipes used the frozen ones. They all sound delicious. Thank you Could frozen brussel sprouts be used in all of these recipes

    I had no bacon, so used spicy pork sausage instead. Still great! I'm not a Sprout fan, but these were yummy!
