Bacon Brussels Sprouts


This is one of those simple dishes that you could serve as a side or just sit and eat the whole bowl.  On your couch.  In your pajamas.  Just saying….

I cook this in a cast iron pan so if you use another type your cooking time may vary.  Also, make sure that you don’t get sprayed with bacon grease when you add the brussels sprouts.  I just try to make sure my sprouts are dry when I add them in.  I hope you love this as much as we do!

6 pieces of bacon (I use organic turkey bacon)
1 lb. of brussels sprouts.
1/3 cup walnuts
salt to taste
pepper to taste

Start by frying the bacon in a 12 inch skillet on medium heat.  While that is cooking wash and quarter the brussels sprouts length wise.

Makes about 4 small servings (or 1 very large, shameful one)
