Jennifer Broome’s Bacon Brussels Sprouts

To make it super easy, use prepared, store-bought Brussels sprouts. You can also use frozen ones and follow these directions to prepare.

If you want to cook the Brussels sprouts yourself, preheat the oven to 400ºF. In a large ovenproof, nonstick skillet on medium heat, warm a bit of olive oil and sauté a little garlic. Add salt and pepper to taste. Add Brussels sprout and cook 5-10 minutes, stirring frequently. Bake 15 minutes or until Brussels sprouts are tender.

Fry up several slices of bacon (3-5), and crumble bacon strips over the finished sprouts.

Here’s the trick: pour a little of the bacon grease over the Brussels sprouts!
