Hoisin Glazed Brussels Sprouts with Bacon

Hoisin Glazed Brussels Sprouts with Bacon

While this recipe breaks some rules and crosses some cuisines, the flavors are amazing and it makes a great side dish, or main dish if you’re inundated with Brussels Sprouts.  If you don’t have Hoisin sauce, use regular BBQ sauce, it will taste a little different, but they’ll still be good!

This is a great way to introduce non-sprout eating kiddos to this gem.
