BRUSSELS SPROUTS with BACON
I wish I loved working with vegetables as much as I love baking. I love eating vegetables, but often wish I had a sous chef in my kitchen when I'm preparing them. I just find all of the peeling, chopping and dicing a bit tedious... I'm one of those who naturally micro-dices everything; ending up spending far more time on a dish than I need to. I admire cooks that can coarsely chop garlic or toss large chunks of vegetables into their soup. I, on the other hand, have this need to keep everything a precise 1/8-inch cube. This vegetable dish was easy; everything tossed into one pot. The house smelled great and I finally used up that huge bag of brussels sprouts that my husband brought home from the grocery.

There are not many things I'd rather eat than vegetables, and not many vegetables I'd rather eat than Brussells sprouts. But I'm with you on the chopping -- hate it!

Eileen I once was lost but now am found; that is to say I once shunned the b-sprout, but as maturity sank in and I ate fresh tender ones not cooked to death, I had a revelation. Your matching of bacon and the b-sprout continues to elevate the status of this delightful veggie as a staple on my menu. Thank you kindly!
