DON’T DOUBT THE SPROUT!!

There are many ways to prepare Brussels Sprouts, but this one is my favorite. I always make a LARGE portion, enough for dinner and breakfast (leftovers are KEY for a Paleo lifestyle)!! Think your kids won’t want to try?!? Follow along and learn how to take Brussels Sprouts from YUCK to YUMMMmmmm!!

GROCERY LIST

2 bundles of Brussels Sprouts

Bacon (at least 6 strips)

Onion

Red Pepper

COOKING INSTRUCTIONS

Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Steam Brussels Sprouts for 4 minutes. Set aside to cool.

Brown your Bacon over med/high heat for a few minutes on each side. Don’t overcook!! Set aside on paper towels to drain & cool.

Reserve your Bacon Drippings (ALWAYS!!). I have this cute little tea cup that I reserve our Bacon Drippings in. Just toss in a pan when making eggs or veggies …. It adds DELISH flavor!! Bacon. Yummm!!

Once Brussels Sprouts have cooled, chop stems off and cut in ½ or ¼ (depending on the Sprouts size) pieces. Remove and discard any loose layers.

This is where it gets fun & my recipe becomes YOUR recipe. Use whatever sounds good, smells good or you think would taste good. I’m a fan of Onions, Peppers AND BACON!! Chop & add as little or as much as you’d like. Stir in some fresh ground Black Pepper & the Bacon Drippings (or Olive Oil). Spread evenly onto a baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 min. Stir once or twice while baking.
