This side dish is a classic Thanksgiving side. There a couple different ways to make this. Some use pancetta, I used applewood smoked bacon.
You can add dried cranberries and walnuts (at the very end) to this if you want to fancy it up too! Some recipes call to boil the sprouts, some don’t. I like my sprouts tender, like braised cabbage, so I opt to boil them a little to get that nice tenderness. You don’t have to, if you prefer not to.
Topped with bacon, you’ll be surprised that this side may not last long displayed on the dinner table.
