So on FB, I found a very dear friend and met her husband - Diane & Don. Wonderful folks and we share a lot of interest - like the Saints, tailgating, and cooking.

They shared this recipe that made for Thanksgiving and I added my own touch to it.

Share & enjoy!!!

Everyone will love Brussels sprouts after they take a bite of this yummy cheesy bacon Brussels sprouts recipe. The Gruyere cheese sauce is super creamy and tangy. Bacon adds a wonderful crunch and a bit of smokiness. Rich and delicious, this is a great holiday side dish. But, it's so good you're not going to just want to have it at the holidays.
