Sauteed Brussels Sprouts with Bacon

I've always loved brussels sprouts. My family, not so much. We had brussels sprouts in our Bountiful Baskets two weeks in a row and I was so excited. The first week, I roasted them with olive oil and salt and pepper. My 3 year old loved them but my other kids hated them. So when we got them the second time, I found this recipe with bacon. I knew they would be delicious because everything is better with bacon, right? I told my kids they had to try them even though they hated them the first time and guess what? They loved them! Now I'm actually craving this. It was so good!
