I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Brussels Sprout and Bacon Skewers

Don't say "I don't like brussels sprouts" until you've tried them like this.

You'll need:

wooden skewers, that have been soaked in water
mini frozen brussels sprouts
bacon
garlic powder
black pepper

Because I was using mini sprouts I cut the bacon strips in half lengthwise. I think if I were using larger sprouts I would cut them in half, so either way cut the bacon I guess.

So defrost the brussels sprouts. Thread one end of bacon onto a skewer, add a sprout then weave the bacon around and onto the skewer and continue filling your skewer like that.

Once they are prepared give them a good sprinkling of garlic powder and fresh ground pepper.
Slip them onto the barbecue in between the meat and potatoes. They won't take up much room. We used the Cookina reusable grilling sheet here. Works great!
Barbecue (or oven temperature) around 400F for 15-20 minutes. Then discover how good brussels spouts can be.

Bacon makes everything good : )
