Brussels Sprouts with French Fried Onions by Amiah

Sheri Raleigh-Yearby


Thanks to my loving daughter Chef Amiah we have this great recipe to share! The French Fried Onions cooking make your mouth water before you even before you taste the tender Brussels Sprouts and crispy bacon! Amiah cooked this at Thanksgiving three years ago and it was such a hit, she made it again at Christmas for her grandparents. I never knew my nephews ate Brussels Sprouts! I think I got a tablespoon full! Next time we doubled the recipe!
