Bacon + Apple Brussels Sprouts

Judging by my last few weeks of food posts, you’d probably think that I’m obsessed with two things: peanut butter and Brussels sprouts. And that would be true (and I’m not even ashamed of it!). Which is just one reason why I’m sharing yet another Brussels sprouts recipe with you. The other reason: It’s absolutely delicious.
