Yummy Brussels Sprouts

Posted on

I was not a fan of brussels sprouts growing up. Hell, I wasn’t a fan into most of adulthood. In the last five or six years I have started loving them. Really nutritious and powerful flavor that I now love! Of course Cooking Light came to the rescue with a yummy recipe that I think you’ll love!

6 slices bacon
1/2 cup shallots, sliced
1 1/2 pounds brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved
6 cloves garlic, sliced
3/4 cup chicken broth
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper, freshly ground

1. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add bacon, and sauté for 5 minutes or until bacon begins to brown. Remove pan from heat. Remove the bacon from pan with a slotted spoon, reserving 1 tablespoon drippings in pan (discard the remaining drippings).

2. Return pan to medium-high heat, and stir in bacon, shallot, and Brussels sprouts; sauté 4 minutes. Add garlic, and saute for 4 minutes or until garlic begins to brown, stirring frequently. Add the chicken broth, and bring to a boil. Cook for 2 minutes or until the broth mostly evaporates and the sprouts are crisp-tender, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat; stir in salt and pepper.

About Amy

Recently I came to an ugly realization–I am middle aged. I didn’t really think so but then I doubled my age and thought, “Hmmmm…some of people don’t live to that age. I must be middle age.” This epiphany came in the third quarter of my 39th year. So I am surviving middle age…it’s scary.
