    Love brussel sprouts especially with bacon! We made some great brussel sprouts the other day that used little cubes of pecorino which gave it a great flavor, that would probably be great with some bacon added in like this! Ooh you really must try them roasted! Just try them once more and if you don t like them roasted, then maybe you really don t like them ??
