My sister in law prepared a dish last year during the holidays and I fell in love. I tried to make something similar and this is what I came up with.
Brussels sprouts with bacon, sweet onions and garlic…yum!
Perfect as a side dish for the 4th of July or any holiday.
Do I need to say more?
First, you need Brussels sprouts
You need to sautéed some onion and garlic.
- 1 pound of Brussels sprouts, washed and halved
- 4 strips of bacon, chopped
- 1 medium onion, diced
- 2 garlic cloves, sliced
- 1 cup of chicken stock
- salt and pepper to taste
Preparation: Cut off the ends of the Brussels sprouts and remove any of the yellow outer leaves.
Cook the bacon in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Remove and set aside.
Toss some of the fat from the cooked bacon and in the same skillet cook the onion and garlic for a couple of minutes.
Add the Brussels sprouts and cook 2 to 3 minutes. Add the chicken stock, salt and pepper to taste and let cook until Brussels sprouts are tender.
Transfer to a plate and add the bacon.
