Not exactly a recipe:

Cut up and fry ~1/2 lb bacon. Drain fat. Add cleaned/prepped brussels sprouts. Saute until until sprouts are cooked but still somewhat crisp. Season with salt and pepper. Drizzle lightly with Sriracha.

Correction: Finish the brussel sprouts and bacon in a 400F oven, until sprouts are cooked but still crisp.

Sorry about that.

I do wonder about travelling with any recipe that relies on brussel sprouts being crispy from the oven. The crispy aspect does not seem to travel well. If there is oven space available that might help but I do not have personal experience with re-crisping sprouts.

Agree with your concern, caninechef.
Trena, I would go either for
1) something that can be served at room temp (like Momofuku sprouts with fish sauce vinaigrette)
2) something half-cooked at home and finished in host oven, if there were world enough and time.
Also, I just looked in the recipes section and there are 499 (!) sprouts recipes, here alone.

Excellent point, however I'm traveling to the neighbors, so should stay crispy. Thank you!

Nancy, I've tried the Momofuku many times and it's delicious! Thank you.

Chops - Would you suggest going with a grocery store balsamic or should I use a more expensive syrup balsamic?

Traders Joes Balsamic or well-aged quality supermarket is fine. I've used Fini. I also buy the pre- chopped pancetta cubes (a must, IMO) and so is the chopped thyme. I cut the balsamic a touch, though. Breadcrumbs optional. I've tripled the recipe with success & made this dish to take a mile away and drive with it (about 1 1/2) with re-heating. Tried & true for sprouts lovers.

I always use chicken broth because I never have veal. I do prefer the Fini though better. Make sure you reduce other syrup down so its creates and sticky glaze.
