Brussel Sprouts and Bacon

Brussel sprouts are one of my very favorite veggies, although I am always boring and only have them steamed and eaten with lots of butter. With the first sprouts of the season I wanted to do something different.

Brussel Sprouts and Bacon

4 slices bacon, chopped
olive oil, if necessary
4 cups trimmed brussel sprouts, quartered or halved, depending on size
2 cloves garlic minced
1 cup chicken broth

Heat a skillet over medium high heat. Add the bacon and cook until crisp. Remove from pan. If there is not enough drippings in the pan, add some oil. Add the sprouts and garlic to the pan and cook, stirring, until the sprouts start to brown in places. Add the broth and bring to a simmer. Reduce heat, cover and let cook until the sprouts are tender-crisp. Remove lid and turn heat back up to medium high. Cook until almost all of the liquid has evaporated. Stir in the bacon and season with pepper. Serve straightaway.

I don't like brussell sprouts very much, but bacon makes anything better!

Hope you are feeling good!

Oh no, it's that time of the year already? (Thinking about when to serve our annual obligatory brussel sprout dinner)

Oh bacon how you make everything better. I do the same with asparagus. Yum! But with the thick cut bacon.

Your brussel sprouts sound amazing! Great combo of flavors:)

I'm just like Karen, just make it 1 a year for the 'men' in the house. I just can't eat it, really hate it... yeah I know I'm so cliché. Very good to eat for the baby though!

Bacon is one of my favorite ways to dress up brussels sprouts!

Yum, I love bacon with brussels sprouts.
That herb container on your side column looks great! I am putting it on my Xmas list.
