Brussels Sprouts Wars (feat. Not much of a recipe really - with a variation

Brussels sprouts are a bone of contention in the MMP.  There are two factions:  the one that considers them yumm, and the one that considers them fart blossoms.

Here' are a couple of recipes from the yummmm faction:

Brussels Sprouts - not much of a recipe really
From: ems

Erm not much of a recipe really but here goes:

Bunch Brussels......trimmed of outside leaves and if they are large cut in half
Add a bit of olive oil (not much a you get the fat from the bacon) to a roasting dish/casserole dish and put the sprouts in the dish and roll them around enough to coat them.
Cut up a couple of stripes of bacon of your choice into about half inch pieces and fling willy nilly into the pan same for the onions. Season up with salt & pepper and a pinch of nutmeg. Roll everything around to ensure they are coated. Shove in oven at 350-375 for about 30 mins until they are fork tender. Eat.

Alternatively sauté onions, garlic and bacon in a cast iron skillet. Add a bunch of thinly sliced Brussels to the pan and sauté in the delicious bacony goodness. Add a splash of balsamic vinegar at the end of cooking just enough to coat them. Salt if it needs it as the bacon will add a lot & lots of black pepper. Serve. Eat. Enjoy.
