Well, you don't have to be. Sprouts are packed with vitamin K and vitamin C AND in peak season right now during the winter months. Here is one of my versions of Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Bacon and Herbs.
My children beg me to make these and they are always finished up. Try them or create your own version - it's easy to make. Roasted Brussels
I was going to say that I'd never been to Brussels, so had no opinion, but I see that it's vegetables! Well the vegetables I definitely like - unless they're cooked by people who don't know how to cook vegetables.
Found a recipe that roasted sprouts with carrots, parsnips & potatoes and the family loved it. I didn't put bacon in with them, but had some gorgeous thick-cut sweet cure bacon which a local butcher does. I baked that on that side and served it with the vegetables. Yum.
I've copied your recipe, will have to give it a try.
That bacon sounds divine!
I've also added balsamic glaze to them as well and tossed around. They caramelize really well and turn out pretty darn tasty.
The recipe I tried has them tossed in olive oil and assorted herbs, salt and pepper. I can only assume the lack of garlic was a mere oversight, so either add some garlic cloves to the mix or garlic salt or pepper.
But I like the sound of a balsamic glaze. I must give that a try too. Yum.
I love them in all of their forms. I used to beg my mother for "those little cabbages."
I love Brussel sprouts - steamed lightly till just fork tender and served with a tiny smear of butter (or not).
I love brussel sprouts too.
