Brussels Sprouts with Bacon RecipeBrussels Sprouts are always welcome in our house, even outside of Thanksgiving. Not having had them growing up I am likely in the minority but I love them and can’t get enough. This recipe is great for someone who is skeptical about Brussels Sprouts, because really adding bacon makes everything good right?

Brussels sprouts with bacon

(serves 2-4)
Adapted from Rachael Ray

3 slices bacon, chopped
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, 1 turn of the pan
1 shallot, chopped
1 ½ lbs. Brussels sprouts, trimmed, small spouts left whole, larger spouts halved
Salt and pepper, to your taste
1 cup chicken broth

Brown bacon in a medium skillet over medium high heat. Remove bacon, drain and set aside. Add shallots to the pan and saute for 1 to 2 minutes. Add Brussels Sprouts and stir to coat in oil. Season with salt and pepper. Cook Brussels sprouts 2 to 3 minutes to begin to soften, then add broth. Bring broth to a simmer, cover and reduce heat to medium low. Cook 10 minutes, until tender. Transfer sprouts to a serving dish and top with cooked bacon bits.
