Back when we were kids, Brussels sprouts were not our favorite vegetable on the menu. However, we have grown to love them, especially during the holidays. This recipe is so easy to prepare with just a few simple ingredients. It tastes so amazing that you’ll be falling for Brussels sprouts, too. They are loaded with bacon, mushrooms, onions, garlic and butter, so we wouldn’t exactly call this a “vegetable side.” It’s more of a delicious partner to turkey, ham or prime rib. Just serve alongside some piping hot mashed potatoes, and the crowd will go bonkers for more. When they ask where you got the recipe, tell them Felix and Greg! We hope you all have a happy and tasty holiday season!
