Ingredients: Brussel Sprouts 12 each
Olive Oil 1 Tsp
Bacon, chopped 4 slices
Shallots, chopped 1 Tbsp
Garlic, minced 2 cloves
Butter 1 Tbsp
Salt and Pepper to taste
How To Prepare: 1. Fill a medium-sized pot with water and salt and bring to a boil over high heat.
2. While water comes to a boil, put bacon and olive oil in a medium saute pan and slowly render until slightly crisp.
3. Meanwhile, remove any loose leaves from sprouts, trim ends, and score an X on the bottoms. Blanch in boiling water for 2-4 minutes (depending on size) until they can be pierced with a knife without much resistance.
5. Prepare a bowl with ice and cold water. Remove blanched sprouts from boiling water and put in ice bath to stop cooking (1-2 min.). Drain and cut into quarters. Set aside.
6. Add shallots and garlic to bacon. Continue cooking over low heat until softened, 4-5 min.
7. Raise the heat to medium and add brussel sprouts and stir well. Cook for about 5 minutes. Be careful not to overcook.
8. Season with salt & pepper and serve.

Positive aspects of the product (pros): easy, quick
Cons: none

This is a great recipe! It has quickly become one of our family favorites. Even my wife, who used to hate Brussels sprouts loves this. My 5 year old also loves it. Because it's hard to find good Brussels sprouts year round here, I have even used frozen sprouts and it turns out fine. Just be sure not to over cook them. I also use the Hormel bagged pre-cooked bacon-bits and this becomes a quick and easy recipe. Yum!

Positive aspects of the product (pros): Disguises brussel sprouts
Cons: Getting the sprouts to correct tenderness

I hate brussel sprouts, but I really liked these alot and so did my 13 year old and husband.

I didn't use shallots, I used about 1/4 of a yellow onion sliced very thin. I didn't use butter. I used about 2 TBSP garlic that's already minced and comes in a jar with olive oil. I used a couple TBSP olive oil extra. I used about 3 slices of bacon, cut up. I followed the cooking instructions for the Brussel sprouts. I think next time I'll blanch them a little longer, but my husband liked them a little firm. I guess it depends on taste. Just make sure you don't do mushy. The blanching makes them a pretty green color.

Positive aspects of the product (pros): great way to prepare brussell sprouts

I really enjoyed this! It was easy to make, and the sprouts tasted really good with the bacon. I'm still searching for a recipe where I can really carmellize the brussell sprouts, but this was good and I ate the rest of it cold the next day.

I LOVED this! Even the Husband who doesn't like sprouts liked it. I did cook the sprouts longer so they were softer, and I drained some of the grease, but it was awesome!
