This Brussels Sprouts with Bacon is such a simple idea but really quite good. This is another recipe from Vegetables Every Day.
I’ve heard a lot of people say they don’t like Brussels sprouts but when I ask it seems they haven’t actually tried them! They just heard other people say things. We’ve always liked them and my youngest loves them!
Brussels Sprouts with Bacon
- 1/2 pound of Brussels sprouts
- 3 pieces of bacon
- pepper to taste
- Trim the ends and a few outer leaves off each of the sprouts. Bring a pot of water to boil and add the trimmed sprouts. Cook about 6-8 minutes, until tender, then drain.
- Cook the bacon in a skillet, turning periodically. When it’s done to your liking, put the bacon onto a paper towel to drain. Break or chop into small pieces.
- Drain most of the bacon grease out of your skillet, then add the Brussels sprouts back in and cook a few minutes, stirring. Put in a serving dish and sprinkle the bacon pieces on top.
