Bacon&Garlic Brussel Sprouts
Brussel sprouts are always getting a bad rap. I never ate them growing up but I always hear horror stories about other kids being force fed them and disliking them as grown ups. My friend Fran introduced them to me a few years back. It was love at first taste!
I can understand how they can be a turn off. If they’re not prepared the correct way, they can smell a little funny or be too mushy for being overcooked. If they’re made right (al dente), they’re heavenly! Hold on to your fry pans ladies and gents. You’re in for a quick recipe and a delightful brussel sprouts experience.
-large fry pan
-1 lb brussel sprouts (halved)
-4-5 cloves of garlic
-2-3 strips of bacon (sliced into small pieces)
Heat a large nonstick fry pan over medium-high heat. Add bacon, and sauté for 5 minutes or until bacon begins to brown. Keep the drippings in the pan, you won’t need to add any oil to the pan. Add minced garlic and sauté for another minute. Add brussel sprouts and cook for 4-5 more minutes until they’re brown. Add salt and pepper. Presto…you’re sprouts are done and ready to get in your belly.
