Char-Broiled Brussels Sprouts with Bacon and Onion
Onion and bacon pair beautifully with Brussels sprouts especially when you put a nice char on them. This hearty side dish was a total experiment on my part. Brussels sprouts love the cool weather of fall and early winter. If you can find them still attached to the stalk, don’t be intimidated—buy them, as they’re likely more fresh. All you need to do is slice off each sprout with a paring knife. However you find them at the market, this is a delicious way to prepare them.
