Brussels Sprouts with Onion and Bacon

11 Sep

Brussels sprouts sauteed with bacon, onions, and garlic.

-By Carrie (Strommen) Lennie


½ lb lean bacon, finely diced
1 cup diced yellow onion
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 lbs Brussels sprouts, trimmed
2 cups chicken broth
4 Tbsps (1/2 stick) butter


  1. In a heavy-bottomed pot over medium heat, fry the bacon until crisp. Remove the bacon and drain on paper towels.
  2. Sauté the onion and garlic in the bacon grease over low heat until soft, about 3 minutes. Add the Brussels sprouts and stir them around so that they are coated with the bacon grease.
  3. Add the broth and cook, covered, over low heat until the sprouts are easily pierced with a fork, about 12 to 15 minutes. Stir in the butter just before serving. Garnish each serving with bacon bits.
