This must be my week for Brussels sprouts 🙂 Since Ashley had her baby this week, Sarah asked if I could make her dish, and I was happy to step in so that she could focus on her new bundle of joy. It was side-dish extravaganza at my house and I was loving every minute!
I think of this more as a main dish than a side dish, because of the sausage, but no matter what you call it…it’s delicious!! And, another fabulous way to cook the veggie that is quickly becoming my favorite. I used bacon instead of pancetta because it was last minute and I had bacon on hand. And hey, they’re in the same pork family 😉
Keep an eye out for that pizza…I see it coming in the near future. And, make sure to check out all the other side dish recipes below!
