The thing about Brussels sprouts is that a lot of people say they don’t like them, but if they had them prepared like this, they would probably change their mind. Of course we all know that bacon makes everything better (wonder if there is a t-shirt for that), so this recipe really can’t be beat. If you don’t eat pork, you can always add garlic instead to give these veggies some extra flavor.
I feel like Brussels sprouts are the forgotten vegetable, these little baby cabbages don’t get any love. Recently, I have noticed them more and more on the menu of some of my favorite restaurants. These eateries are slow roasting them or deep frying them in duck fat, which are giving these veggies the attention they deserve.
I simply prepare them by cooking my smoked bacon first, then sauteing the sprouts in the bacon fat, adding a little water to help them cook through and then adding the bacon at the end. Enjoy!
