For any Holiday meal we all look for a great side dish. I have come up with a great side dish using brussel sprouts and bacon. At the end of the meal they are always gone so the family most certainly likes them. You must use fresh sprouts and not frozen ones. It is a very easy recipe to prepare also.
5 slices of bacon
1 1/2 pounds of fresh sprouts, trimmed and halved
In frying fan fry the bacon until crisp and remove. Disgard about half the bacon fat. Add the sprouts to the pan and cook sprouts about 2 minutes and remove. Lay the sprouts on a baking sheet, sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place the sprouts in a pre heated oven at 350 degrees. Bake until sprouts appear done approximately 15 to 20 minutes. Take bacon and put in a freezer bag. Smash the bacon until it resembles bacon bits. Take sprouts from baking sheet to serving bowl. Take the bacon and mix together. You now have a great side dish for any Holiday Meal. Cheers !!
