Since Thanksgiving is right around the corner, it's time to give Brussels Sprouts the spotlight.
This member of the Cabbage family has come quite a long way from the plain old steamed 'n bitter green your mama made you eat before leaving the table.
This day 'n age, it's a celebrated bar snack or side dish, usually glorified with Bacon fat or sweet caramelized Nuts.
Here's where to gather them together.
