The Brussel Sprout Recipe that will Change Your Life for the Better (and Healthier)


Over the years, brussel sprouts have gotten a bad rap.

As a child, they were used as a punishment tactic: “Clean your room or else you eating brussel sprouts for dinner, young lady!” I spent the majority of my adolescence avoiding them at all cost. In fact, I wouldn’t even going near the little green buds up into my late twenties — until I tried this recipe.

Now, I am a brussel sprouts believer. Maybe it’s because bacon and caramelized onions cover a multitude of sins, or maybe it’s the combination of all the flavors. Regardless, after trying this recipe, you too will be a brussel sprout believer.
