Brussel spouts get a bad name, but they are delicious! Just make sure to add bacon. 😉
But seriously, the first time I tried a single sprout was a year ago and it was because I was at my mother-in-law’s and couldn’t say no. I went all 4 year old on her and grabbed half a sprout, to smell, lick then taste. I was blown away at how good they were!! How could people say they were awful? Maybe these are sprout lovers who don’t want the rest of the world to know. Either way, I’m tearing the cap off it. Brussel sprouts (with bacon) are DELICIOUS! Give them a try.
3-4 pieces of bacon (regular or turkey) cooked and crumbled, fat removed
1 bag of Brussel sprouts, end cut off and sprouts cut in half or chopped (totally up to you how knife happy you get)
1 Tbsp of bacon fat or olive oil
Warm the fat or olive oil in a skillet
Add the cut sprouts into the skillet and sauté on medium heat
Stir occasionally, but let the sprouts brown
After the sprouts are brown on at least one side, add the bacon and warm through.
Optional: Some people like to add a little salt, some like a little sautéed red onion and some like to add balsamic vinegar. I like mine just like how the recipe is, but feel free to make them your own!
