Thanksgiving Brussel Sprouts with Bacon

  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Healthy Recipes, Peppers, Onions

 Ingredients List

  • 1-2 Lbs Fresh Brussel Sprouts
  • 1/4 Cup Olive Oil
  • 6-8 Strips of Bacon or use 1/8 Cup Real Bacon Bits (can sub Pancetta)
  • 2-3 TBSP Finely Grated Onion
  • Salt & Pepper to taste


1. Clean and steam the brussel sprouts until they begin to become tender, then set aside.

2. Do not overcook or they”™ll taste soggy or like overcooked cabbage. I think this is why so many people don”™t like them.

3. I”™ve served this to more than a few people who claimed to dislike brussel sprouts. Guess what? They had seconds! Heat a skillet and either cook the bacon strips or bacon bits, until crispy.

4. Wipe out the pan when done and keep hot over medium heat.

5. Add the olive oil and once it begins to heat up, add the onion. Cook for just a few minutes so it flavors the oil.

6. Remove from heat and pour over the brussel sprouts. Add fresh cracked pepper and just a little course salt. I use Pink Himalayan that comes in a grinder.

7. Toss and top with the crumbles of bacon. Enjoy!
