Sauteed Brussels Sprouts W/Bacon-Onion & Peppers

Rose Mary Mogan


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.
