Chicken Legs recently discovered his love for brussels sprouts. He ate them at Gianmarco’s one night and fell in love with them. He has been asking me to make them for him at home. I’ve never made brussels sprouts at home, but I was willing to give it a whirl.

I tried to make them similar to what Chicken Legs ate at Gianmarco’s. I cooked some bacon and then added the brussels sprouts until they were nice and brown. I added a little drizzle of balsamic vinegar. Chicken Legs gave these two thumbs up! He has already requested them again this weekend!!

  1. So quick and easy! Best sprout recipe we have tried! Didn’t even add salt and pepper, it was so yum! That balsamic really added a nice touch.

  2. I've made this twice. So delicious. Tastiest recipe I've found for Brussels sprouts. And I'm an amateur cook, which means that if I can make it, anyone could.

  3. Do you think I could use frozen sprouts? I bought a bag at Trader Joe's & have been dying to use them. Thanks for the feedback!

  4. Definitely love my brussels sprouts with bacon. The bacon fat adds a nice rich taste and the saltiness is perfect.

  5. My husband loves Brussels sprouts and I've made them in a similar fashion. They're also really good roasted in the oven. Excellent recipe! Looking forward to trying it soon. 🙂
