One of the foods we like with dinner are these maple roasted brussel sprouts with bacon.
Flavor like this could change the minds of brussel sprout haters!
These came to one of our gatherings several years ago and they were such a hit this dish was added to the regular menu. Pretty good as a stand alone meal too.
If you are not eating meat use the bacon substitute and the taste is comes out the same.
