Sautéed Brussel Sprouts

This is a recipe I get asked about a TON!brussel-sprouts

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.

Ingredients:
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

Directions:
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.

Serve!

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!

Prosciutto Wrapped Chicken Thighs

This is way more of a meal for my husband than me.Chicken Thigh Done
I like white meat, he likes dark.
Cured meats aren’t really my thing, he makes meals out of them.
Hence prosciutto wrapped chicken thighs.
They really are very yummy and the crispy prosciutto rocks my socks off.  Soooo good!  And 21 Day Fix approved!

Ingredients:
8 boneless, skinless chicken thighs
8 pieces of prosciutto
Rosemary
3 cloves of garlic, thinly sliced
1/4 c olive oil
Sea salt
Pepper

Directions:Chicken Thighs Prep
Warm oven to 350 F
In a pie dish, mix olive oil and sliced garlic.
Take one sprig of rosemary and strip it, then coarsely chop the rosemary.  Add this to the olive oil and mix well.
Cut the remaining rosemary into 8 sprigs
Take one chicken thigh and spread it flat.
Sprinkle with sea salt and pepper.
Drudge the thigh through the olive oil mixture.  Do this with both sides.
Then place a sprig of rosemary in the middle and fold the thigh over.
Wrap the thigh in a piece of prosciutto and secure with a toothpick.
Place the thigh on a cooling rack and place the cooling rack on a baking sheet.
Continue with the remaining thighs.
If you have remaining olive oil, drizzle over the thighs.
Bake at 350 for about 40 minutes.

Serve.
