Brussels Sprouts with Bacon
- 3-4 slices of thick cut bacon
- ½ lb brussels sprouts per person
- 1 minced garlic clove
- salt and pepper
Cut bacon into ½” pieces and cook in a skillet, medium-low heat, until some of the fat starts to render (about 4-6 mins).
While the bacon is cooking trim the stems and slice each sprout in half. For larger sprouts, cut into quarters for even cooking.
Add 1 tablespoon of butter to the pan.
Add garlic and cook 1-2 minutes, careful not to burn.
Add Brussels sprouts. Cook until tender (about 12 mins).
Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Optional: Spice them up with a dash of red chili flakes.
