Salty bacon, sweet apples and caramelized Brussels sprouts are combined in this truly outstanding side dish. This was one of those dishes that I kept hearing about from friends, until I couldn’t resist trying it myself. Oh. My. Goodness. Absolutely DELICIOUS. I am confessing now that as I was taking this picture, I probably ate about a third of this dish. Yes, I am officially nuts over Brussels sprouts.
Edited to add: Four years later, this is still a family favorite. My kids happily eat Brussels sprouts when they are served this way and everyone else that has ever tried this in my home has raved about it. This is one of my all-time favorite side dishes.
