Why not serve these beauties as an elegant side for Thanksgiving dinner? These are one of my favorite vegetables. Caramelizing the brussel sprouts makes them sweet while the bacon adds a smokey and salty element. Soooooo tasty!
Pan Roasted Brussel Sprouts
2 strips bacon, cut into 1/2″ pieces
1 lb. brussel sprouts, stems removed and cut in half
salt and pepper
1/2 cup water
1) In a large skillet that has a lid, cook bacon until crispy. Remove from pan and drain on paper towels.
2) Add brussel sprouts immediately to the hot pan with the bacon fat. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook for about 5 minutes or until the brussel sprouts are nicely browned.
3) Add 1/2 cup water and cover with tight fitting lid. Steam for 5 minutes.
4) Top with the cooked bacon. Serve immediately.
