Staple Recipe: Brussel Sprouts with Bacon

(Auston with his cousin at the pumpkin patch this fall…we loved finding honey sticks and brussel sprouts still on the stem!)


As I’ve mentioned before Auston is in love with Brussel Sprouts! He loves them with bacon…actually, he probably thinks that they just go together as we always pair them up! It is a heavenly combination!

This is defiantly a winter staple in our family and I hope you all enjoy it too!

Brussel Sprouts with Bacon

1 pkg. bacon (be sure to get it without preservatives or sugar), frozen (8oz is fine too!)

1-2 lbs brussel sprouts

salt and pepper to taste


Using kitchen sheers cut bacon into 1/2 inch pieces into a large skillet on medium high heat. Cook bacon until mostly done. While bacon is cooking wash brussel sprouts and cut in half (or 1/4  if it is a large brussel sprout). Add brussel sprouts to bacon and cover. Cook for approximately 10 minutes or until desired tenderness is reached. Season to taste.

To save a bit on this recipe, you could always just use the  bacon grease (and save the bacon for another meal!) or butter!

Enjoy your “bekon with pencil pouts” as Auston would say!
