- brussels sprouts
- Using a sharp knife, slice Brussels sprouts about 1/4-inch thick, to make about 5 cups. (Could use the slicing blade on your food processor) Cook bacon pieces in a large skillet over medium high heat until crispy and brown and most of the fat is rendered. Remove bacon slices and let cool; crumble or cut into 1/4-inch pieces. Add onion to skillet, turn down heat to medium and saute in bacon drippings for 3-4 minutes until translucent or slightly golden. Add the sliced sprouts, olive oil, salt and pepper; cover and cook for about 1 to 2 minutes to soften the sprouts. Uncover and and add back the bacon crumbles; cook over medium-high heat, tossing occasionally, for about 2-3 minutes, until the sprouts are tender but still a bit firm. The sprouts should still be bright green. Serves 4.
