Bacon Brussel Sprouts
A guilt free way to eat bacon! These Brussel Sprouts are still delicious on their own but the bacon really adds some delicious flavor to this side dish. I serve a vegetable to our 3 kids every night and I could not find one they all agreed on until now. This is a recipe the kids get excited about and we eat this side dish about twice a week.
  • Ingredients:
  • Bacon-organic Nitrite/Nitrate free
  • Brussel sprouts
  • Butter
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  1. Cook the bacon until it’s crispy, then crumble into small pieces.
  2. Cut the bottoms off of the Brussel sprouts and then cut them in half. Steam the Brussel sprouts for approximately 15 minutes. I do not recommend boiling them. It changes the flavor and consistency in an unfavorable way. In other words the kids won't even touch them if they are boiled! But they love them prepared when they are steamed.
  3. In a bowl toss the Brussel sprouts with a table spoon of butter, the bacon pieces, and salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Serve!

Health benefits of brussel sprouts - Brussels sprouts are surprisingly high in protein for a green vegetable, and just one serving would meet your needs for vitamin C and vitamin K for the day. Not only do brussel sprouts help prevent cancer but they offer digestive support, are an anti-inflammatory and they lower your risk of heart disease. This is to just name a few.
