Joby's Brussel Sprouts with Bacon

Print Friendly and PDF

This amazing and tasty recipe is from my talented niece, Joby, who made these on Christmas eve. The brussel sprouts were so fresh, salty, caramelized, tangy and bacony...I could not stop eating them, and I am typically not a fan of brussel sprouts. You will love these little guys!

1 lb of brussel sprouts, washed and halved
6 strips of thick cut bacon, cut in 1/2 inch pieces
2 shallots,minced
2 serrano peppers, chopped
1 garlic cloves, minced
3 T balsamic vinegar

Clean the brussel sprouts. Trim the bottoms and peel off outer leaves. Cut about 1/4 inch of the bottom. Cut them in half. Slice the bacon into 1/2 inch wide strips. Cook until crispy, and then drain on paper towels. Dice shallot, garlic and serrano. Saute 1-2 min until translucent. Add the brussel sprouts. Saute for 8-10 min. until they start to caramelize and get nice and brown. Add the bacon and stir. Add the balsamic vinegar and continue to cook for 3-5 min. stirring frequently. Remove from the heat and serve.
