Brussels sprouts with bacon-horseradish cream

This is a great side dish! It’s possible that even your family members who don’t normally like Brussels sprouts will like these. Possible. Not necessarily highly likely though!

We love ‘em, and we always have. Maybe we’re just weird that way. With this wonderful sauce conjured up by Eating Well magazine, we love ‘em even more :-)

Brussels Sprouts with Bacon-Horseradish Cream

1-1/2 pounds Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved
4 strips crisp-cooked bacon, finely chopped
1/4 cup reduced-fat sour cream (I used plain yogurt instead)
2 teaspoons prepared horseradish
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

1. Place a steamer basket in a large saucepan
, add 1 inch of water and bring to a boil. Put Brussels sprouts in the basket and steam until tender, 6 to 8 minutes.
2. Mix bacon, sour cream, horseradish, salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Add the Brussels sprouts and toss to coat.
