I love brussel sprouts but steamed brussel sprouts all the time can get boring. Yet, that was the only way I knew how to make them. Then my friend, Trish, came to a party with a crockpot full of pan roasted brussel sprouts with bacon. Yum! They are now my new favorite. I couldn’t stop eating them. Another little bonus for me is that it totally fits with the Atkins low-carb diet I just started!
This recipe is very simple. I would say it feeds four to six people but, honestly, you may want to double it to be sure. It is so tasty, people will want more.
1 pound fresh brussel sprouts
4 slices bacon
1/2 white onion or 2 T chopped green onion
2 T salted butter
pepper to taste
Shift the heat up to high.
Stir them for about 8 minutes until lightly brown.
Break up the pieces of bacon and add back into the pan.
Sprinkle with pepper to taste.
Serves 4 – 6 people, maybe. LOL.
