3. Stir butter and olive oil into bacon grease, add shallots and cook until translucent.
4. Add the halved brussels sprouts and pan fry, stirring frequently until the brussels sprouts are golden (be careful not to burn them or they will taste bitter),and tender, yet still slightly firm, about 10 minutes. (Add â…“ cup hot water if pan is getting dry and sprouts aren”™t cooking).
5. To re-heat bacon, add it back to the pan for the last 5 minutes of cooking time.
6. Squeeze lemon juice over cooked brussel sprouts and season with salt and pepper.
