We are serving you a plateful of wallet-busting vegetables today, but wait, don’t knock it– it has bacon! We all know that everything is better (and more palatable) with bacon. Unless you don’t have a special mutation that allows you to enjoy brussel sprouts, in which case you can pair your pan-seared bass with just bacon. supports your handicap.

    omg! I’m a mutant! I love sprouts, and yes, when I can, pay through the teeth for them!

    Love Brussel sprouts as they are but found that tossed with cranberries (maybe raisins if that’s more available), they are even better! It’s a tart, sweet, salty party…. The sosyal kind 😉

    Also, can do a food hack on ampalaya? Love the sprout, but can’t tolerate the gourd!
