Brussel Sprouts with Bacon

by admin


  • 5 slices bacon, cooked and chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 shallot, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 1/2 pounds Brussel sprouts, trimmed (small sprouts left whole, larger sprouts halved)
  • Salt and pepper, to your taste
  • 1 cup organic, free range chicken broth


Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil. Place bacon on sheet and bake at 425 degrees until crispy, flipping halfway through. Remove bacon to drain on paper towels. Add extra-virgin olive oil, shallots, and garlic to the pan, and saute 1 to 2 minutes. Add Brussel sprouts and coat in oil. Season with salt and pepper. Cook Brussel sprouts 2 to 3 minutes to begin to soften, then add broth. Bring broth to a bubble, cover, and reduce heat to medium low. Cook 10 minutes, until tender. Transfer sprouts to a serving dish with a slotted spoon and mix together with cooked bacon bits. Serve!
