Bacon and brussel sprout kebabs

Brussel sprouts are often the forgotten vegetable during festivities. I like adding them to dishes such as pot roasts, sauces and gravies or baked dishes. This time around, let’s add them them to a kebab.

I’ve added bacon which I cut myself, drizzled honey over it as they came out of the oven. The colours are mesmerizing. Should you not enjoy pork, replace with chicken strips.

Did you know? Purple brussel sprouts contain anthocyanin flavonoids which have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties and are responsible for the purple hue of the sprouts.
