I can’t even believe I’m posting a recipe with brussel sprouts. What happened to the kid in me who swore she would never eat food that smells like sticky shoes? I made it through 30 some odd years of my life without ever trying a brussel sprout. Then I met my restauranteur husband, Brad. Brad has this way of asking you to try a bite of something and it goes something like…try a bite…no, really, try a bite…the next thing you know it’s in your mouth. I didn’t want to like it; mostly because I’m stubborn as they come and additionally I hate to give Brad the opportunity to ever tell me…I told you so! This time I gladly stand corrected. I LOVE brussel spouts!
I think we should call this particular recipe, Brussels a-la Cheryl. A bunch of our friends get together every year around Labor Day at Cheryl’s amazing home, check it out here. We all stood around her in the kitchen as she prepared dinner this year. Cheryl asked each one of us what we would suggest for the brussel spouts and this was our collective outcome. Deliciousness and Oh, the bacon from Sea Side Market is the key. The recipe is below. Let me know if you give this a try? Xoxo and smooches
