One of the most trendy ingredients for the last five years has been bacon. We have seen it everywhere, from breakfast to salads to deserts, a friend of my families came up with a candied bacon donut and obviously it was amazing. Bacon is just one of those meets that vegetarians everywhere wishes they could eat. Its just that good! I found a recipe that is simple and basic, and has many versions of it. Brussels Sprouts with Bacon!! This is a tasty way to make sure your kids will eat their Brussels Sprouts. I’m not sure why Brussels Sprouts have such a bad rap! I have always been a fan of them. They taste like leafy cauliflower to me, which is the best!


10 Brussels Sprouts

3 Slices of Bacon

1/2 Cup of Red Onion

2 Cloves of Garlic

Salt and Pepper to Taste

When cleaning your Brussels Sprouts, peel back a few layers of the leaves to get rid of any dirt that may be on the surface, wash under cool water to get any inside dirt. Then chop bacon into thin slices, as well as you onion. Mince your garlic so it can essentially be lightly roasted in little pieces. Cut the Brussels Spouts into halves or quarters which ever you prefer.

In a skillet, cook the bacon on a medium heat until brown. Using a slotted spoon remove bacon from skillet. Add sliced onion and garlic and cook in the bacon fat. Cook until the onions and garlic are soft and tender and the onions are more translucent. Then remove the onions and garlic from the skillet and put in the brussels sprouts. Cook them until they are lightly browned on the sides (about 10 minutes). Then add back to the skillet your onions and garlic and bacon and cook together for about 5 minutes and stir around. Add salt and pepper to taste.

This makes an excellent side dish or a very tasty lunch. It serves 2 – 3 people. It isn’t hard to get a healthy tasting dish with a little bit of guilt to it. Bacon is the perfect ingredient to make you feel just guilty enough and when you add some healthy hearty vegetables you can’t go wrong! Try making this simple delicious side dish for you next meal.
