Sautéed Brussels Sprouts with Bacon

Sautéed Brussels Sprouts with Bacon - just like our favorite restaurant! Ready in about 10 minutes! Great weeknight side dish.

Chicken Legs recently discovered his love for brussels sprouts. He ate them at Gianmarco's one night and fell in love with them. He has been asking me to make them for him at home. I've never made brussels sprouts at home, but I was willing to give it a whirl.

I tried to make them similar to what Chicken Legs ate at Gianmarco's. I cooked some bacon and then added the brussels sprouts until they were nice and brown. I added a little drizzle of balsamic vinegar. Chicken Legs gave these two thumbs up! He has already requested them again this weekend!!

  3. My husband loves Brussels sprouts and I've made them in a similar fashion. They're also really good roasted in the oven. Excellent recipe! Looking forward to trying it soon. :)

  4. Definitely love my brussels sprouts with bacon. The bacon fat adds a nice rich taste and the saltiness is perfect.

  6. Do you think I could use frozen sprouts? I bought a bag at Trader Joe's & have been dying to use them. Thanks for the feedback!

  7. I've made this twice. So delicious. Tastiest recipe I've found for Brussels sprouts. And I'm an amateur cook, which means that if I can make it, anyone could.
