They are high in vitamin C and have other nutritional benefits too!

The secret ingredient when cooking Brussels sprouts is crispy, salty bacon! I start by frying bacon in a skillet. I then cook the sprouts in the leftover bacon fat before making the alfredo sauce from cream, garlic, lemon juice and parmesan cheese. How could you resist this decadent dish?
