Well, brussel sprouts are not a vegetable I've had often.  But, my friend Vicki recommended making them with bacon.  Everything is better with bacon, right?   Here is my take on her recipe!

4 slices thick cut bacon, sliced
1 lb brussel sprouts, ends trimmed and sliced in half
salt and pepper

  1. Cook bacon over medium heat until cooked.
  2. Remove bacon and allow to drain on a paper towel.
  3. Place cut brussel sprouts in bacon fat and cook over medium for 10-12 minutes (or until desired crispiness).
  4. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Serve with bacon on top!

Yummy!  I may have to make this for Thanksgiving!!
