1 (16 ounce) package
frozen Brussels sprouts, thawed and halved
We use the bacon grease w/ the olive (or coconut oil we had on hand) and then saute brussels sprouts. Very good & will make again.
Well, I wouldn't say I hated it, but didn't love it either! I did use 1 onion & about 9 pieces of turkey bacon. Than again, I am not a Brussels Sprouts kind of person!
Just a short note from the author that in my original submission there was no olive oil. Just use a small amount of the bacon grease and also add salt and pepper to taste.
Thanks for trying it!
This did turn out pretty tasty, although I did change it up a bit. I halved the bacon, and I just used the bacon grease instead of the olive oil. I also added a clove of garlic....Honestly, I can't cook without it :)
I enjoy this recipe, however... I ended up making a few changes to make it spectacular.
The second time around I used a pat of butter, chicken broth and a clove of garlic minced.
Even people that don't like Brussel sprouts loved it. Caramelizing the brussel sprouts changes the flavor slightly.
This was delicious! My family didn't think they liked brussel sprouts, but these were a hit at Christmas Eve dinner. I did make one addition to the recipe. I added a bit of brown sugar to them. I knew the kids would like them better that way and they were very good. I didn't use a lot, just a bit for a subtle sweetness. Thanks for a great recipe that I will make again and again!
Any vegetable cooked with bacon already has great potential in my book. I used fresh Brussels sprouts, added minced garlic, and cooked them only until crisp-tender, not browned. Loved the flavor as well as the vibrant color.
We're big brussel sprout eaters and this was a nice change. Added a few seasonings, but used fresh sprouts which I steamed first. Delicious and thank you!
