You are probably thinking that there is no way you would cook Brussels sprouts, much less eat them. However, you are wrong. I never had this vegetable growing up (it's not very Southern), but a few years ago I made it for Thanksgiving and have loved it ever since. Bacon is the key though!
Roasted Brussels Sprouts With Bacon
3 bacon slices, chopped
1 lb. Brussels sprouts, cut into quarters

1. Sauté bacon in a cast iron skillet until it begins to cook through. Stir in Brussels sprouts, and cook, stirring occasionally, 15 minutes. Stir in salt, pepper, and lemon juice. Cook 5 more minutes.
2. Bake at 400° for 10 minutes.
