Day 325 – Brussels and bacon

20131126_151726

Aren’t these little green guys adorable? I’m sure they will be even better when dressed with a little bacon. 🙂
Today I’m trying a Rachel Ray recipe: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/rachael-ray/brussels-sprouts-with-bacon-recipe/index.html

It’s perfect for Thanksgiving and these “baby cabbage” looking things pack in some amazing health properties such as cancer reducing components and a high dose of much needed fiber. Of course the bacon does not have these lovely qualities, but I couldn’t resist. 🙂
Enjoy the sprouts slightly undercooked to done, but don’t overcook or they tend to give off that sulfur smell and you lose a lot of the nutritional value.
