    I have used this for years now EXCEPT for the apple.My original recipe was called "Brussels Sprouts for people who Hate Brussels Sprouts" and so far I have a number of converts to love them. Great job posting this and I will use a sweet apple instead of the Granny. THANKS ! - 11/20/13

  • I never cooked Brussels sprouts before but this recipe made it very easy and it was delicious. The recipe did not indicate when to add the onion so I added it to the pan when instructed to add the sprouts and apple. I will make again. - 11/2/14

  • I've made this with turkey bacon to reduce the fat and with vegetable stock instead of water to enhance the flavor. It's a favorite around our dinner table. - 1/4/14

  • My husband was fed bitter brussel sprouts as a kid so we've never made any, until this. And he loved them! We used turkey bacon, sweet apple, and apple cider and it was still wonderful (although I'm sure regular bacon is better.) Also used thawed frozen sprouts. - 1/2/14

  • We used pancetta instead of bacon and was yummy. Suggest searing/grilling brussel sprouts for more crunch. - 11/23/13

  • We love brussels sprouts but do not eat meat - how can I get good flavors without the bacon? - 11/20/13
