brussel sprouts2_FGBrussels sprouts are wonderful, but they are an acquired taste for some due to their slightly bitter flavor. This dish is perfect way to make Brussels sprouts accessible to almost anyone – the bacon provides a smoky salty touch, contrasted by sweetness from the onions and cranberries, resulting in an excellent mix of flavors.

This is a perfect side dish for the holidays, and is generally just great throughout the winter.cleaned and cut brussel sprouts
