These Bacon Brussel Sprouts are now my favorite side dish, I can’t believe I didn’t try them earlier. The first time I made them was last Christmas and everyone was asking me for the recipe. So here it is… BACON Brussels.

Since Christmas of last year, I have been making them almost monthly. I will serve them for super as opposed to just a side dish and no one has ever complained.

However they work very very well as a side dish, think Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner. Not only are they super delicious their also very filling, because those little brussels are packed full of fiber. So go ahead and indulge!

They don’t take that long to make either, I like to cook them directly on the stove top this way they pick up all the flavor from the cooked bacon. Making this a true one pot dish, that anyone can prepare in less than 30 minutes.

Prep is pretty easy, simply wash and trim off the bad ends of the brussel sprouts. Then slice them in half, and set aside while you saute the bacon. Once the bacon is cooked, add in the brussel sprouts, seasonings and saute in the same pan till their done.

Be certain to purchase a good quality bacon, you don’t want a ton of fat in it. Because you will be frying the sprouts in the leftover bacon fat, now don’t frown now. My bacon gives off about 1 tbsp of fat, it’s that lean.

This step really enhances the flavor of the whole dish, so I recommend you give it try before you knock it. However you can drain all the fat if desired, just be sure to still saute the brussels in the same pan as the bacon was cooked. I hope you enjoy!

Start by washing the Brussel Sprouts, cut off the rough ends then slice lengthwise and set aside. Once the bacon has cooked, but not caramelized add in the Brussel sprouts and seasonings. Add in the Red Wine Vinegar last and it’s ready to serve.

I tend to eat these for dinner frequently, however they really should be shared.
