Pete, couldn't get your thread to open, hope this isn't same--these are **** good, I used walnuts and about half as much bacon and added a bit of olive oil, can't help myself! this is how it was wriiten by a poster on Epi, think it might be from Fine Cooking?
---For the assemblage, I had 8Cups of brussels sprouts which I did a chiffonade of on the thick slicer of my food processor, and it made 8C of brussels sprouts slivers! Separate the leaves, if necessary.
Fry 12 oz. bacon. Reserve grease. Chop bacon.
Stir fry the brussels sprouts in the bacon grease. Add several dashes of balsamic and the bacon crumbles and mix. Add 1/2C chopped hazelnuts (or I thought Pistachios would be delicious also). That is it.
I think I probably had 2# of brussels sprouts--they were on the stalk so I didn't have a weight.
