I can't believe it's about to be Thanksgiving! Every year I like to throw in a new recipe. I decided to give this bacon and onion brussel sprouts recipe a dry run in case I wanted to change it a bit. Veggies are always a hard topic in our house I have a very picky kid and husband. I'm not so picky with veggies and I have to say that brussel sprouts get a really bad rap! I had them cooked with bacon and onion at a local restaurant and fell in love with them. I wanted to recreate it at home and here is what I came up with.
- 1 Bag of brussel sprouts about 25 of them stems cut and any bad leaves on the outside removed
- 5 Pieces of Bacon
- 1/2 Sweet Onion cut into quarters then sliced
- 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
- 2 -3 tablespoons butter
- Salt to taste
Heat a saute pan on medium-low.
Cut Bacon into 1/2 inch pieces and scatter into the pan.
Once the fat starts to render (or bacon starts to cook and you see some grease) throw in the onions and garlic.
Cook until bacon is crisp and the garlic and onion are softened.
Throw in the butter and brussel sprouts.
Turn in pan with a spatula or spoon until sprouts are bright green and tender approx 15 min.
