Maple Glazed Brussels Sprouts From "What A Dish!"

Merry Christmas everyone!  Here's a great recipe for Brussels Sprouts.  Try it for Christmas dinner, it's one of our family's favorites!

What you need:

1 lb. Brussels sprouts

1 tsp. salt

2 slices of smoked bacon cut into 1/2 inch pieces

1/3 Cup of REAL maple syrup

2 Tbsp. butter

Optional:  pecan halves (toasted)

Trim ends of Brussels sprouts off. Remove any discolored outer leaves.  If the sprouts are large cut them in half. Bring 2 quarts of water to a boil.  Add salt and Brussels sprouts.  Cook until they are tender, about 5 minutes. DO NOT OVER COOK.  Drain well and set aside.  In the same pan cook the bacon until crisp and brown.  Set this aside on a towel to drain the grease.  Discard the bacon fat from the pan.  In the same pan add maple syrup and heat over medium heat.  Add the butter and simmer until the sauce thickens ( a simmer is heating just under a boil).   Add the sprouts and toss. Add the bacon, pecans, and salt and pepper to taste.  All done.  Let me know what you think and see you soon at "What A Dish!"
