Brussel Sprouts with Gorgonzola Cream Sauce and Bacon

Brussel Sprouts with Gorgonzola Cream Sauce and Bacon recipe pictures

If I have said it once I have said it a thousand times. If you have not tried brussel sprouts before, it is time you do so. They are not the disgusting vegetable you were lead to believe was your punishment as a child. You know, eat 2 bites of brussel sprouts and you can have a cookie. Depending on the cookie (store bought?) I might actually prefer the brussel sprouts. Prepared correctly, brussel sprouts are seriously delicious.

Cliff and I eat roasted brussel sprouts about once a week. Brussel sprouts are tied for favorite vegetable with broccoli. Athough, roasted green beans are currently making a run for it. While we were in Washington D.C. a couple of years ago we ate at a restaurant called MatchBox. My entree came with brussel sprouts with gorgonzola and bacon. I had been meaning to recreate this dish ever since. It may have taken me two years, but I did it! I will never tire of eating brussel sprouts and I will never stop trying to incorporate brussel sprouts into different dishes. Brussel sprout love forever!
