One comment on “Garlic Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Bacon”

  1. I made this, but I added more garlic and mushrooms. I omitted the red pepper flakes and the salt (it messes with my system). It was wonderfully delicious. The second time I made it, I added chopped ham and it was a fantastic main course. My husband and I snacked on this for days.
