Brussels sprouts with bacon

Take Your 100 Calorie Snack Packs and Shove It, Nabisco

15 Brussels sprouts or so
2 strips good, thick cut bacon
1 clove garlic, minced
Salt & pepper to taste

Slice the sprouts very thinly using the slicing disc of a food processor or with a sharp knife.

Cook the bacon in a nonstick skillet over medium-low heat. When done, remove bacon and pour off almost all the fat; chop bacon. Put the pan back on the heat, add the sprouts and garlic to the pan, salt & pepper, gently toss, and cover. Cook, removing lid to stir gently every minute or so, about 5 minutes.

Remove lid, add bacon, stir. Taste sprouts for doneness (they should be crisp-tender) and seasoning. Squeeze a bit of lemon over and serve.

  1. We made this this week, sans garlic, with apple cider vinegar and a glob of grainy mustard on the side. Delicious! Thanks, we have gotten brussel sprouts in our CSA many weeks in a row and were out of ideas!
