This is delicious and a side dish that is gone the minute I get it to the table!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

We feel like Brussels sprouts are a very misunderstood veggie. This recipe is hearty enough you could eat them as a meal. The Brussels sprouts are roasted until they're crisp on the outside. When tossed with the tangy dressing and savory cheese and bacon, this is one fabulous side dish. Toasted nuts on top add a little it of nuttiness to the sprouts. We'll definitely be serving this one to guests. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
