I chose this recipe to be my first post because I love anything that is sautéed. I also love bacon! Who doesn’t love bacon, I mean, c’mon? Brussels sprouts is one of my most favorite veggies! It can be a challenge to cook this amazing produce because it could either come out too soggy or too hard. It had to be perfectly cooked Brussels sprouts. Roasting it in a pan creates a sweet taste to the outer leaves, and slivered almonds add that crunchy texture to the dish.

  1. Having been one of only three people who tasted this dish, I can say that it was well balanced with the bacon adding saltiness and the slivered almonds providing a contrast in texture. I recommend it!

  2. This looks great! I love brussel sprouts and so do my kiddos!

    Can I suggest a change in your text color though? It’s a bit hard to read, the pink or green is easier to see and read than the brown.

  3. Phoenix, congratulations on starting your blog! Man, you and DB are going to make me very very hungry with all the amazing food that you guys post. I hated brussel sprouts as a kid but that’s because I only ever ate them over-steamed and soggy. Roasted brussel sprouts are the best! And bacon makes everything better.

    • Thank you for your awesome comment! I notice that some people are not into Brussels sprouts and my plan is to change their minds. I do believe that bacon makes it better, and so is sautéing it in minced garlic. I have a lot of kitchen hikes to do. Right now, I’m planning my next dishes to blog. Like!!!
