Bacon Brussels Sprouts

Bacon Brussels Sprouts


  • 1 1/2 pounds of Brussels sprouts
  • 5 strips of bacon
  • 1 large white onion diced
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • To prepare the sprouts, cut off the base and cut the sprout in half, or in quarters if they're very large. Discard any dirty or wilted outer leaves.
  • In a cast iron skillet over medium heat, cook the bacon until done, and place on a paper towel lined plate to drain. Keep the grease in the skillet.
  • With the grease in the skillet over medium heat, add the onion and garlic and cook until softened and translucent, stirring frequently.
  • Add the Brussels sprouts and cook, stirring every few minutes, for about 20 minutes, or until the sprouts are softened, slightly browned, and a little blackened in some spots.
  • Chop the bacon and add to the mixture and combine well. Serve warm.
