Pan-Fried Bacon Brussels Sprouts
I think people have an aversion to Brussels sprouts and veggies, in general because at some point in their life they have had them boiled or in some kind of a mushy form. I am telling you that is not the way to have veggies. Vegetables can be so flavorful, and it only gets amplified more when you cook them with complementary spices or in this case savory bacon.

I love eating veggies and I like to cook them in a way that really makes them sing, like pan-frying them, which is essentially roasting them on the stove top. Pan-Fried Bacon Brussels Sprouts has those crispy edges on both the bacon and the Brussels sprouts which give them texture.
For the bacon, I try to find the most natural, uncured bacon there is at the store and go with that. There is absolutely a difference in quality the more premium bacon you use.

- 2 slices of bacon
- 1 pint of Brussels sprouts, , trimmed and halved
- pepper to taste
- Cook bacon according to instructions on package (on medium low heat), turning over to cook evenly, this can take several minutes but it will depend on the size of the pieces of bacon. Place cooked bacon on a plate covered in paper towels to dry. Set aside. Pour off excess fat, leaving some in the pan to cook the Brussels sprouts.
- In the same pan, on medium-high heat, place Brussels sprouts, cook 5-7 minutes, cover with a spatter screen, then stir allowing them to cook evenly another 5-7 minutes. While the sprouts are cooking, when the bacon is cool enough, you can crumble it up. Turn down the heat if necessary. When they are done, serve tossed with the bacon crumbled. Enjoy!
