Brussels sprouts, trimmed
pancetta bacon, diced
ground black pepper
I made this low calorie and fat free. I used olive oil flavored Pam and liquid smoke instead of pancetta. The flavor was great and it is healthy!
Maybe it's because I'm so used to eating vegetables this way that I found this good, but only average. I can tell you, however, that even as an Italian familiar with pancetta, I'll take regular old American bacon over it any day! Unless you're familiar with pancetta and really like it, I think I'm safe to suggest you substitute bacon here and in any other recipe calling for pancetta. I've even forced myself to try to like it and just can't. I tried again in this dish, tasted it and started over again, the second time with bacon.
This was a great recipe for brussel sprouts. The only change I made was I used bacon instead of pancetta.
I definitely recommend adding heavy cream toward the end. I also threw in sliced mushrooms and sprinkled with Parmesan. Oh my lord, SO good!!!
I love this recipe, but I added a half a cup of half and half at the end and let it simmer for a bit. It made it even better! So creamy and still had that salty pancetta taste.
Loved this!!! My Husband practically licked the plate and even my Picky kids ate it all. Revised 07/2007
I made this camping and used bacon. WOW it was a Huge Hit everyone wanted the recipe !!!!!!!!!
Wonderful! Next time I'm adding onions too. DELICIOUS! Oh and I used fresh proscuitto from the deli cut in 1/4 inch slices and diced it myself. Much more flavor and a lot less fat than pancetta. GREAT RECIPE
I did not have pancetta on hand so I used regular bacon in this dish. I'm sure the pancetta would have made the taste even better but this recipe for brusell sprouts was the best I have had so far.
