16 oz washed and quartered Brussel sprouts
6-8 slices of bacon
3-4 Tbsp butter
Salt, pepper, & garlic to taste
In skillet, fry bacon until to your liking. I like my bacon really crispy. Remove cooked bacon from pan and allow to cool for a few minutes. Add butter to bacon grease in pan. Add hopped Brussel sprouts to grease & butter. Sprinkle with seasonings to your preference.
Stir fry for about 12-15 minutes or until largest sprouts are softening. Smaller pieces will appear quite soft and pierce easily. You want a good mixture of soft to barely soft. With about 2-3 minutes left, add in broken bacon pieces and keep stirring until done.
This dish can be made using smaller or larger quantities, depending on size of your family or event. It even keeps well; I take it for lunch often!
