Rachael Ray's Brussels Sprouts with Bacon and Shallots

"Saw Rachael Ray for 30 Minute Meals make these. I thought it would be something different for Christmas Eve dinner, since my DH loves them and I always refuse to make them. Not these...they are DELICIOUS! Even my two year old son loves them!"

  1. This is pretty good, but I was hoping the bacon and onion flavors would be more well blended into the sprouts. I'm still also not partial to a boiled sprout. I thought I'd give it a shot, since I haven't had boiled sprouts since I was a kid and this looked like a really good recipe, but I still don't like them. If you like that, it's fine...but just not for me.
  2. These were so delicious! I didn't think anybody was even going to touch them but they were all gone at the end of our Thanksgiving dinner & everybody was asking me for the recipe. Even my four year old niece loved them! I cooked them a little longer with the broth so they'd be more tender & they were perfect!
  3. This was fantastic. I made it a couple of weeks ago for my picky hubby and I. Made it as recipe stated with shallots. Regular onions would have not been right I believe. For the broth I use granules I add to water instead of keeping the cans on hand. It's been much cheaper that way and handier. This recipe was so good my husband suprised me again today with a handfull of brussels sprouts from the grocery store and said "Please can you make them with dinner?" Thanks for posting, it is a keeper reicpe!
  4. I've yet to find a Brussels sprouts recipe I didn't like, and this is no exception! This was quick and easy to prepare, and the more I keep typing.. the more I'm craving them now! Thanks!
  5. Thanks for posting this recipe! My 3-year-old has been known to gobble up this dish by the plateful! I don't cook with pork, so I used turkey bacon. I also used regular yellow onion finely chopped instead of the shallots. I don't end up needing additional salt, but that probably depends on the type of chicken stock you use. Very tasty!!
