I actually made this for a party and everyone loved the brussels! Let go of that stigma and try something new.
Nuts (I have used macadamia, almond and pine nuts and all work well)
On medium heat, Cook desired amount of bacon. Set bacon aside. Cut brussels in half and place in pan with bacon grease. Add 1 tbsp of butter and satay until slightly soft. Mix bacon, brussels and nuts!!
* just a warning, if brussels are overcooked they will smell/taste like sulfur. just make sure to pay attention while cooking.
Bacon wrapped Dates
Preheat oven to 350.
Pit the dates. Stuff dates with goat cheese and almonds. Wrap date in bacon (I use 1/2 a strip for each). Place dates on baking pan and cook until bacon is finished. (10-15min)
I found both of these recipes from Melissa Byers’ website.
