Someone posted on the Manhattan board looking for a recipe for brussel sprouts w/ chestnuts and bacon. It was from Balducci's, but noone replied. Thought I'd try here. Also interested in any other recipe with these ingredients as they are my faves!
Thanks

    Nigella Lawson's new cookbook, Feast, has a similar recipe, that I'm planning on making for Thanksgiving this year. The recipe is available at the link below.

      This is the ONLY way I eat brussel sprouts--with bacon! I pretty much use the same method as Nigella, but use bacon instead of pancetta, omit chestnuts, use dry sherry instead of marsala, and finish w/ balsamic at the end (so it doesn't burn). Sometimes for texture and flavor, I'll add either toasted breadcrumbs or parmesan near the end. YUM!
