Brussels sprouts with bacon

I love Brussels sprouts.  This is a Emeril's recipe.  It's easy to make and it serves about 4 people.  It is also easy to double.
  • 1 lb. of Brussels sprouts
  • 6 oz. of bacon, cut crosswise into thin strips
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 4 cloves of garlic, sliced
  • 1 t. kosher salt
  • ½ t. black pepper
  1. Boil the Brussels spouts for 8 minutes and drain
  2. Cut in half and place on the side
  3. Cook the bacon in a Dutch oven until crispy
  4. Remove the bacon and cook the onions in the drippings until limp
  5. Add garlic and cook for 2 minutes
  6. Add the Brussels sprouts and the salt and pepper
  7. Cook until sprouts start to brown
Tips and Tricks:
  • The recipe calls for fresh Brussels sprouts, but I haven’t had much luck with the fresh.  I buy the frozen in the bag.  It is not quite a pound, but that’s what I use.
  • If you boil your veggies with salt as I do, you will need to reduce the 1 t. of salt to about ½ t. of salt.  The recipe does not call for salt while boiling.
