Bourbon Beer Brussels Sprouts...

 Our Son loves brussels sprouts, so do all of his kids! 
This recipe is for him.
I had gone to the store with my Bourbon Ale Salmon recipe on my mind! Brussels sprouts sounded like they would be good fixed the same as the salmon.
 My thoughts were correct, they were the perfect compliment to the salmon. 
Totally YUMMY for the tummy....
Here I am, making dinner...HaHa
Bourbon Beer Braised Sprouts
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
 1 package of prepared brussels sprouts, or raw brussels sprouts, clean and cut in half
2 pieces of bacon, cut into small pieces and cooked crisp. Leave fat in the pan, do not drain.
1 heaping tablespoon of brown sugar
1/3 or 4 oz's of Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Beer 
(or a beer you have on hand)
Garlic Pepper to taste
Optional: Butter for the brussels sprouts, in small pieces
 In a small sauce pan, cook the bacon until crisp, leave the fat, do not drain. Mix in a pitcher; beer, brown sugar and garlic pepper. Blend well, add to the sauce pan, cook for 2-3 minutes, then pour over the top of the brussels sprouts (dotted with butter) in a prepared pan.
Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Then remove the foil and cook for 10 more minutes.
These are SO good. If you serve with the Salmon (*see recipe in this section) recipe, you will need to plan, prepare and start to cook these before you start the salmon filet. (*There is a cooking time difference.)
My husband took one bite of these and said; 
"Our Son is going to love these!"
Success with Style...
Serve with your favorite potatoes.
I used Garlic Mashed with Sour Cream.
