Growing up one of my most hated vegetables were brussel sprouts. Even as an adult I can’t say I enjoy them, but the older I get the more willing to try things I have never had or never liked. My motto is, when all else fails add BACON! These little babies turned out crispy with tons of flavor and I actually liked them!
1 cup fresh brussel sprouts cut into halves
1/3 lb of bacon
1 tablespoon butter
1-2 tablespoons bacon fat
Salt to taste
Cut bacon into pieces and cook until lightly browned but not completely cripsy, saving 2 tablespoons of bacon fat.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a medium pan over medium heat, add bacon fat and butter.
Once butter has melted add brussel sprout halves face down.
Season with salt and sear for about 2 minutes until golden brown and remove from heat.
Place brussel sprouts on a baking sheet and tin foil.
Season with more salt and evenly spread out bacon over sprouts.
Roast in oven for about 10-12 minutes until bacon is crispy and brussel sprouts are tender.
