Sweet Brussels Sprout Bacon Bake

Not going to lie….This sounds hideous (this coming from my cousin who I love for telling it like it is), even for a non picky eater which I can claim to be these days! 😉 But something about it is just darn good! What is it about this that makes it good when everything thing screams THOSE FOODS DON’T GO TOGETHER!!!!It must be one of those “freaks of nature” that just works! All I can say is that it is good. If you have followed my recipes, you know by now that I am picky (or at least I used to be). So even trying this for me was completely out of my realm! Apples and Brussels Sprouts….It was a difficult decision, one that most definitely paid off! Its a little bit of sweet, with a nice finishing flavor. Hopefully, you will give it a try and it will pay off for you as well!

I'm married and am very blessed to be the mother of a gorgeous little 2 year old named Mac. I live in good ol' North Dakota! I love to do many things. Laugh, love, write and cook. Mostly, I like to enjoy life to the fullest. That's probably why I love cooking so much. There is no right or wrong way of doing it. My day job keeps me very busy but its also extremely rewarding. I work for a company called Pride Inc. We serve individuals with developmental disabilities. So most of the people on my caseload are like my family. For me, I learned from my grandma that cooking brought people together. I associated it with happiness, love and togetherness and who doesn't want those things in life! So I've always tried to continue that in my own life with my own family. Nothing brings people together like a good meal. And a few good laughs!
