ROASTED BRUSSELS SPROUTS WITH BACON AND ALMONDS

A chef friend of mine once told me that I’m missing out on a great thing if I never eat brussels sprouts.  He also said that there are so many ways to make them delicious!   Since I consider myself an adventurous chef myself I decided that I would create some interesting recipes with them.  Brussels sprouts is a vegetable consisting of the small compact bud of a variety of cabbage.

Brussels sprouts are a beautiful vegetable to grow in your garden.  It consists of a stalk with many little sprouts that look like tiny cabbages.

Brussels sprouts have never been very popular around our house, I guess because neither my husband nor I grew up eating them.  I recently ate at a great restaurant in Birmingham Michigan, Cafe Via, and my friend ordered them.  They looked really good and I tried them and they were delicious!!  This is my attempt to recreate that recipe.  Now to find some additional recipes for brussels sprouts.
