Reviews for Maple & Bacon Glazed Brussels Sprouts

Even our son in law who does not like brussels sprouts liked this dish.
I made these on Thanksgiving, so they were slightly over cooked trying to keep them warm. Bad timing on my part. But they were a huge hit!
I prepared the sprouts the day before and stored them in a plastic bag covered in water with two caps of lemon juice.
My only other comment: my liquid was very liquidy. I was expecting more of a glaze or a "gravy".
The best recipe for Brussels sprouts I have ever tasted, and everybody loves them!
Flavors really work well together.
