How to make it

  • First, slice the Brussels sprouts in half. Slice them vertically down through the stems so the leaves will stay together. If they’re exceptionally large, quarter them.
  • Then chop up the bacon into pieces, like large bacon bits. In a skillet, cook the bacon over medium high heat. Once the bacon is done, take a slotted spoon and remove the bacon tid-bits, but leave the grease.
  • While still on med-high heat, add sprouts and toss to coat. Add a heavy pinch of kosher salt and pepper. You want to cook the sprouts until they are tender, but still have a little bit of a bite to them. During cooking, if you notice that the pan is getting too dry, splash a bit of olive oil in the pan to lube the sprouts back up. Add a lid (for if the oil is spitting at you, but it also helps it cook faster, keeping the heat in and kind of steaming the veggies as they brown). Cook for about 7 to 10 minutes until the leaves have turned soft on the outside but still hold their shape. Remove from heat, reintroduce the bacon, and serve!

    Brussels sprouts, my second favourite, need only be feared 4-6 hours after consuming them.
    I love the idea of the bacon, whether it puts out or not.
