Trim stems and outer leaves from sprouts.
Boil or steam, covered, for 10 minutes, or until crispy-tender.
Cook bacon until crisp; remove from pan and drain, reserving 1 tablespoon of fat from pan.
Add onion and sauté until tender, about 5 minutes.
Combine sour cream, flour, salt and pepper.
Stir sour cream mixture into onion; add crumbled bacon and heat sauce through. If sauce is too thick, add a bit of milk to thin it out.
