Brussels sprouts get a bad wrap for not being the family favorite, but this recipe is so easy and so delicious that it is sure to be a fan favorite this Thanksgiving.

Just a few simple ingredients make a wonderful side dish for your Holiday meal.

This simple recipe calls for Brussel sprouts, butter, bacon, dried cranberries, chopped pecans and salt and pepper. Easy, right? Get this marble Lazy Susan here. It would make a great gift. Get the white marble Lazy Susan here.

Step 1: Cook bacon until crispy, remove bacon and set aside. Reserve bacon grease in non stick frying pan.

Step 2: Place Brussel Sprouts on a cutting board and cut off ends with a sharp knife, then remove any loose leaves. Quarter Brussel sprouts.

Step 3: Add Brussel sprouts to the pan and cook on medium heat until just tender, making sure not to overcook. Season with salt and pepper, get super cute salt and pepper shakers here.

Step 4: While Brussel sprouts are cooking crumble bacon, chop pecans and gather dried cranberries. Get marble mortar and pestle here. I love cooking with my olivewood utensils, they are so much smother than regular wooden spoons and they won’t scratch the pan while cooking.

Yummy, honey butter. Perfect on homemade biscuits as well.

Step 5: Mix the honey and butter. Get butter dish here. While I was looking for the butter dish, I found these super cute butter dishes, here, here and here. These would make great Christmas gifts as well. I love each of these options, but the third one is definitely my favorite.

Beautiful interiors don’t have to come with an outrageous price tag. My style is what I like to call Vintage French Farmhouse, I love mixing decorating styles, especially opposites like the glitz of a chandelier dripping in crystals with a chair upholstered in worn aged leather. Refined, yet not too formal-but, livable, elegant traditional design, adding warmth and vintage elements.
