Paleo Brussel sprouts with bacon recipe


I have always avoided brussel sprouts, I have had them normally prepared boiled until mushy.  Wanted to add some new variety to my meals I decided to give brussel sprouts one more chance and decided that bacon makes everything better and this could even be true for those evil brussel sprouts.  They turned out great and with enough bacon could be an excellent side or exist as the main part of the meal.
