Ingredients

  • 2 Pounds Brussels sprouts, halved
  • 2 Ounces bacon, cooked and diced
  • 1 Tablespoon butter
  • 1 Tablespoon chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • Kosher salt and black pepper, to taste

Directions

Add the olive oil to a large sauté pan and warm it over medium-high heat. When the skillet is just short of smoking, place the Brussels sprouts, cut side down, into the oil. Turn the heat to medium, and sear on 1 side until nicely browned, about 3 minutes. Turn the Brussels sprouts over and add the pre-cooked and diced bacon into the sauté pan. Cook until nicely browned and tender, about 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and place mixture into a serving bowl. Add the butter, parsley, salt, and pepper. Toss until the butter is melted and serve. 
 

Brussels Sprouts Shopping Tip

Look for vegetables that are firm and bright in color – avoid those that are wilted or have wrinkled skins, which are signs of age and damage.
