Brussels Sprouts in Creamy Lime Bacon Horseradish Sauce


I adapted this from my moms Brussels sprouts in Lime Cream recipe from childhood. These go nice with corned beef and potatoes, roast ham or turkey. This sauce also works quite nicely with broccoli, cauliflower, or even kale or Swiss chard. Another option is to substitute crumbled blue cheese for the goat cheese.
