Brussels Sprouts with Bacon and Walnuts

Brussels sprouts are one of my favorite vegetables.  I usually roast them, and sometimes I slice thinly and saute with some Canadian bacon.  Either way, I love them.  While this recipe takes a little more effort (like 5 minutes maybe) it’s totally worth it.  I ate 3 helpings of this dish and ignored everything else on the table.  🙂  I think this is my new holiday side dish I liked it so much!

BRUSSELS SPROUTS WITH BACON AND WALNUTS

2 T cider vinegar
1 T brown sugar
1 T olive oil
1/2 lb bacon, thick sliced
1 T unsalted butter
1 pound brussels sprouts (about 1 stalk)
1/2 cup chopped walnuts, toasted
salt and pepper, to taste

Cook bacon until crisp, reserving 1 T bacon drippings.
Chop bacon and set aside.
In a small bowl, whisk together the vinegar, brown sugar, and oil.  Set aside.
Heat the bacon drippings with the tablespoon of butter in a large pan over medium high heat.  Thinly slice brussels sprouts and add to pan.  Cook for about 5 minutes, until tender.  Add bacon, walnuts, and dressing off the heat.  Add salt and pepper to taste.

    1. I tried this last night. Everyone loved it. We used sausage instead since I wasn’t thinking ahead and hadn’t baked the bacon. The brussels sprouts were amazing. Thank you for sharing a fav.

    2. A bit surprised it seems to simple and yet useful.
