  • 6 ounces bacon cut into 1/2-inch pieces (I used turkey bacon)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds
  • 2 pounds large Brussels sprouts trimmed and quartered
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • Salt and ground pepper


  • Place the bacon in a large skillet and fry over medium heat until the fat renders and the bacon is crisp. Using a slotted spoon, transfer to a plate lined with a paper towel to drain.
  • Pour off all but 1 tablespoon bacon fat from the skillet. Add the olive oil, garlic, and almonds to the skillet.
  • Saute over medium heat until the garlic is fragrant, about one minute. Add in the trimmed and quartered Brussels sprouts and the soy sauce.
  • Cook, stirring frequently, until the sprouts are tender - about 6-8 minutes.
  • Stir in the bacon; season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Serve warm.
