If you are like me and have a hard time eating your vegetables I have a very simple and immensely effective way of changing that… Just add a little bacon. Great as a side or appetizer.
What you need:
a couple pounds of brussel sprouts
bacon (quantity is up to you) I could easily use a pound but a more modest approach might be 5-6 slices.
salt, pepper, garlic
How to do it:
Cut the brussel sprouts in half and boil them for 3-4 min
Chop up the bacon and cook until almost done, remove from the pan and place on paper towel. Drain some of the grease but leave a little for the onions and sprouts
Add the onions and cook for a couple of min until transparent, then add the spices and brussels. Cook, stirring well for a few min or until tender.
Toss with the bacon and you are good to go. Mini cabbages with bacon. Yum.
