Brussel Sprouts With Bacon

There are a lot of people out there who do not like brussel sprouts, but I promise you will LOVE these! It took me a while to get these just right and now that I have, I want to share them with you. Now, who’s ready for some brussel sprouts with bacon?

Here is what you will need:

  • Brussel Sprouts (I use the bag from Costco)
  • Bacon (I use the real bacon pieces)
  • Onion
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper

This is one of those recipes where you don’t do exact measurements. It is all about getting the brussel sprouts to the taste and consistency that you want.

The first thing I do is finely chop the onion. I love the flavor, but I don’t want large chunks mixed in with the brussel sprouts. Also, I typically don’t use the entire onion. Usually about three quarters of it is good enough for my taste buds.

Next, cut the brussel sprouts into quarters. If I use the bag of brussel sprouts from Costco, I use about half of the bag. If I use brussel sprouts from Walmart, I use the entire bag since it is smaller.

You will then take the olive oil and cover the bottom of a pan with it and turn it to medium heat. Add the onion and about half of the bag of bacon to the olive oil and sauté until the onion is tender.

And now, it’s time to add the brussel sprouts! I always add plenty of salt and pepper and stir often. I cook them until they are nice and tender.
