Best-ever Brussel Sprouts [June]

These don't taste at all like the bitter brussel sprouts that alot of us have had that made us never want to eat them again! As we all know, everything is better with bacon and that might just be the key ingredient that makes the difference.
Brussel sprouts (but you knew that) - I used approximately 12
2 Slices Bacon (preferably thick - and more if you like bacon)
1/4 Cup Onion
2 Tbsp Brown Sugar
Cut stems from brussel sprouts, cut in half and peel away any loose leaves.
Dice bacon into small pieces and fry until crispy. Add onion to pan and cook under translucent. Add sprouts. If it looks a little dry, add a little white wine or vermouth. Saute until sprouts are lightly browned & tender. Add brown sugar and let cook until sprouts begin to caramalize.
We served this as a side with Grilled Curry-Fig Turkey (that Tom posted a couple days ago) and grilled sweet potatoes.
