Last month I had the opportunity to co-host a twitter party for the Motherhood and the National Mango Board. We had a great time chatting and learning about mangoes. While visiting their site I saw a recipe that I knew would be perfect for our non-traditional Thanksgiving dinner – Brussels Sprouts with Mango and Bacon. What’s not to love?
The preparation time is about 10 minutes and cooking time about 15 minutes. This is really a quick and delicious recipe that would go with anything. My brother actually said that it is his new favorite way to eat Brussels Sprouts.
I did make a couple of adjustments to the original recipe. The recipe called for fresh brussels sprouts cut in half. Our local market sometimes carries little bitty mini brussels sprouts which are frozen. I like them so much that I substituted them in the recipe. I don’t think it affected the flavor however the fresh vegetables would have looked better in the photo. I also left them cooking longer because our main course wasn’t ready therefore they cooked longer and didn’t look as crisp as the original recipe.
I like the recipe so much that I want to make it again. Visit the National Mango Board and get the original recipe and try Brussels Sprouts with Mango and Bacon and let me know what you think.
