Brussels Sprouts with Onion and Bacon


Brussels Sprouts don't always make the top of the list as people's favorite food item. I think they're one of those things where you either love them or despise them. For the longest time I found myself in the latter category. My earliest memory of brussels sprouts was when I was probably 7 or 8 and my mom made them at dinner one night. They were SO bitter (no offense to my mom-she's an AMAZING cook!). Typically the rule at the dinner table was you had to eat what was on your plate, even if you didn't like it, and my dad-as most dads are-was the enforcer of this rule. Thankfully, it took him one bite for him to say "kids, you don't have to finish those brussels sprouts"!!! We all had a mini celebration, and proceeded to give the scraps of dinner to the dog; when Scout wouldn't even eat them, we knew we were justified in our dislike of brussels sprouts, because he ate EVERYTHING. I carried that impression of brussels sprouts well into my adult life until just this year. I had a bottle of the Tantara Farms Garlic EVOO and wanted to try something fresh with it. I got this wild hair to cook brussels sprouts with it! And let me tell you, I'm now a believer! Put me in the former category of loving brussels sprouts. They're now a go-to side item at dinner time for me, so that's why they made the cut of this weeks #mondaymeal inspiration for you! So check out this recipe....
