Let's talk about brussel sprouts; weird looking baby cabbages with so much potential. I have to say, I really truly love brussel sprouts...particularly when paired with bacon! Brussel sprouts wouldn't be quite so appealing all by their lonesome. Here's a quick, simple recipe that will get your taste buds humming.
Chop part of an onion and a slice or two of slab bacon into small pieces. Cook in a saute pan until it's almost done. While the bacon starts, cut off the ends of your brussels and slice them into thirds (or whatever size you see fit). When the bacon is almost done, add the brussels into the pan. If the bacon didn't render enough fat and the pan is too dry, add a bit of olive oil or butter. Grate in a clove of garlic. Salt and pepper to taste. Stir everything to combine. Let cook for 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Enjoy! Warning: this is addicting (but it's okay because it's pretty healthy!).
