If a dish of plain old Brussels sprouts has never tickled your taste buds, maybe it’s time to try something new!
By cooking the little veggies in a sweet and zesty sauce, then stirring them up with the salty flavor of bacon, you can turn a holiday vegetable dish into a real treat.
If you’re still on the fence about sprouts, maybe you need to just look at them a little differently. Back in 1963, an anonymous food writer’s description of American Brussels sprouts was syndicated to several newspapers across the country.
“The gourmet’s darling and the plain cook’s delight,” he or she wrote, “looking like a little green and golden rose, with its intricately-folded petals dappling from palest white-green to deepest glowing emerald-fire.”
Now couple that “green and golden rose” with smoky bacon, add a little scrumptious sauce, and — boom! — you’ll have something that would be more than welcome on your holiday dinner table.
