Not cooking for a crowd? Well then cut the recipe in half if you want, by why would you want too?

You can have this for lunch over the next few days, just store any leftovers in a sealable container and enjoy. 

It’s even good cold, but serving it warm is certainly best.

Did you know that Brussel Sprouts are packed full of nutrients?

Such as vitamin C and vitamin K, folate, manganese, vitamin B6, dietary fiber, choline, copper, vitamin B1, potassium, phosphorus and omega-3 fatty acids.

So don’t feel bad for adding bacon to them to enhance their flavor, after all the same amount of bacon in this recipe is similar to that of a large pizza.

Prep is pretty easy, simply wash and trim off the bad ends of the brussel sprouts, shred in the food processor.

In the same skillet, melt butter in with reserved bacon grease over medium heat. Add pine nuts, and cook, stirring until browned. Add Brussels sprouts and green onions to the pan, and season with seasoning salt and pepper. Cook over medium heat until sprouts are wilted and tender, 10 to 15 minutes. Stir in crumbled bacon just before serving.

I didn t find this recipes time intensive at all. I used my food processor to shred the sprouts and it worked great. Once the bacon was cooked, it went very quickly. Excellent recipe!!! Rave reviews and request for recipe by all!!!! Read More

If making the breadcrumbs, fry them in butter or oil with the lemon zest until golden-brown and crisp (about 3 minutes). Stir into the sprouts and serve immediately.

I simply want to tell you that I am just new to blogging and site-building and truly liked you’re web page. Probably I’m want to bookmark your site . You certainly have remarkable writings. Appreciate it for revealing your website.

I’ve observed that in the world these days, video games are the latest rage with children of all ages. Periodically it may be impossible to drag your kids away from the activities. If you want the very best of both worlds, there are various educational video games for kids. Thanks for your post.

An intriguing discussion is worth comment. I’m sure that you simply write regarding this topic, may possibly not be considered a taboo subject but typically persons are too little to communicate on such topics. To another. Cheers

Oh my goodness! an amazing article dude. Thank you However I am experiencing issue with ur rss . Don’t know why Unable to subscribe to it. Is there anyone getting identical rss problem? Anyone who knows kindly respond. Thnkx

I have mastered some important things through your site post. One other thing I would like to mention is that there are lots of games available on the market designed specially for preschool age little ones. They consist of pattern acceptance, colors, pets, and styles. These commonly focus on familiarization instead of memorization. This keeps little children engaged without feeling like they are studying. Thanks
