Here is the recipe that I used, based on The Traveling Spoon's eye-catching recipe:
3 slices bacon
1 tablespoon olive oil
12 brussel sprouts, washed and cut
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
3 tablespoons brown sugar
Cook bacon in frying pan, set aside to cool. Drain off excess grease from frying pan (don't worry about scraping clean, I figure a little extra bacon flavour is good!)
Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil to the pan, warm, and add minced garlic. Saute for 1-2 minutes. Add in the brussel sprouts and salt. Saute for a few minutes until starting to heat through, then add the brown sugar. Continue to cook and the brown sugar will melt away. Crumble the bacon and add to the pan. Serve immediately.
We are already brussel sprouts fans in our house. But let's just say...this recipe is awesome! There was NOTHING leftover. Nada. Zilch. Empty serving dish! My husband had THREE helpings, he liked the sprouts that much! It was a WINNER! We will be making this again...try this dish and you will become a fan of brussel sprouts!
