Brussel Sprouts and Bacon
A brussels sprouts and bacon dish ready in under 30 minutes.
Servings 6 side dishes
- 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.
