Brussels sprouts is one of our family favorite veggies, and I decided since it was Christmas why not add Red Sweet Peppers to highlight the green & red colors for the Season. I added Bacon to give flavor, & sautéed them in the rendered bacon fat, the flavors were very good. While they were hot and just before serving, I added a sprinkling of finely shredded blend of Italian Cheeses, which really did add more flavor. Simple blend of veggies but quite tasty, and appealing on the dinner table.
