My husband and I have always loved brussels sprouts, but our kids wouldn't touch them until I made this recipe. Tomato juice and cheese give this vegetable a place on the family table.—Diane Hixon, Niceville, Florida
I never thought I liked brussel sprouts until I was given this very old recipe. It's delicious and may just change your mind about Brussel sprouts! *It's not a good idea to add salt to this recipe, as the bacon and parmesan cheese are already salty enough.
I've substituted broccoli and/or cauliflower for the sprouts and they are also delicious prepared in this way. The only change I make is that I generally use a microwave steamer to cook the broccoli and cauliflower.
These sprouts are easy to toss together on weeknights, but they really wow at a holiday dinner. We usually have bacon on hand, but pancetta makes them extra special. —Mandy Rivers, Lexington, South Carolina
