The sauce was fantastic for the this recipe. I have to add a couple of comments though. The recipe does not mention what to do with the bacon grease after cooking the bacon; I drained the majority of it after cooking, leaving a teaspoon or so to saute the shallots. I think much more would have made the sauce too greasy. Also, be warned that cooking the sprouts as recommended on a cookie sheet leaves them very al dente. I prefer mine a little softer. If I make this again, which I probably will, I most likey will steam the sprouts instead. Soaking them in the salt water did a nice job of removing the bitterness usually associated with the vegetable and was a good trick - one I will use again. Thanks for a nice recipe!
