      Truly great Brussels sprouts, JC. I used the pecans rather than the bacon and subbed a little olive oil for the (1/4cup? of) butter. I used the mandolin for slicing the onion and settled on the food processor for the sprouts. I typically carmelize onions over medium-low heat for 35-45 minutes and did so here. We love Brussels sprouts and these are going to be regular items on the menu.

      Yum!! The flavours in this dish are wonderful.I used all of the ingredients (bacon, not the pecans) but I just added the sprouts (halved) and the bacon with the onion. I also added a few asparagus spears in the last 5 minutes of cooking. We loved this served with steak - my kids actually ate brussels sprouts and liked them.I thank you for the recipe - even though I changed it a bit!!
