Some people love them, and some people just haven't discovered this recipe yet. Brussel sprouts get a bad rap, but usually it's because of the way they were prepared back in the day (boiled or steamed until grey and mushy, giving a less-than-pleasant odor to the entire house). But, roasting them and giving them a chance to caramelize transforms them into tiny little gems of deliciousness!
This recipe brings together Brussel sprouts, maple syrup and bacon in a tasty side dish worthy of converting any die-hard objectors! Give it a try...I promise everyone will be delighted with this yummy recipe!
