Reviews for Brussels Sprouts with Bacon & Garlic
"This is an awesome recipe. It is not surprising because it is a recipe by Mandy Rivers. I love her food blog, South Your Mouth!"
"Fantastic!! So delicious and easy. I quartered the sprouts instead of cutting them up into slices. This one's a keeper."
"I have never met a Brussels sprout that I didn't like, but these go to the top of the list! Excellent flavor, nice tender crisp texture, and a colorful plate for the holiday table, to boot. As a volunteer field editor, I am happy to rate Mandy's recipe 5 star winner!"
