I know that the picture above is not the best looking food picture ever, but don’t let that dissuade you from trying my brussels sprouts. We were almost done with dinner and when I thought to take a picture, so this is what was left. As a general rule Brussels sprouts are healthy, these are probably not real great for the heart, but boy are they good.
When I was a kid, I hated these vegetables more than any other. I avoided them like the plague and allowed myself to avoid them until recently. My kids and I were at a restaurant for dinner and these were on the menu. The bacon and blue cheese convinced me that they would be safe to try. I am officially converted, however toxic the recipe may be.
Brussels Sprouts and Bacon
1 pound brussels sprouts
1 pound bacon
The instructions are easy. Cut up the bacon and fry it. Once cooked drain most of the fat. Add the shredded brussels sprouts and fry in the bacon until crispy. Add blue cheese to taste.
We ate these with salmon and quinoa in an effort to cancel out the bad fat.
