Thinking Thanksgiving: Brussels Sprouts with Cranberries & Bacon

Bacon makes everything better.
Seriously, bacon is not the only thing that makes this Brussels sprouts dish palatable. Use the "petite" Brussels sprouts that are sweeter and more tender.
The cranberries are very "Christmas-y" against the green dish and add more sweetness and nutrition.
Lauren Graham of Morgantown brought this as her covered dish today to a scrapbooking crop held at Mountain Mamas Retreats.
This is very good and I will serve it to my family soon -- maybe as a Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner side dish.

5 slices bacon
1 14-ounce bag Hanover Steam-in-Bag Petite Brussels Sprouts
1/2 to 3/4 cup chicken broth
1/4 cup dried cranberries

Chop and fry bacon. Steam Brussels sprouts according to package directions. Add to bacon. Add cranberries and broth. Cook until the cranberries plump and the broth evaporates/absorbs.
