SAUTÉED BRUSSEL SPROUTS
Sautéed brussel sprouts are great as a side dish (or just in general because I can’t get enough of these)! I love adding bacon and pancetta to my mine- it adds SO much more flavor. Trader Joe’s actually sells the bacon pieces already chopped up and ready to fry- which obviously makes my life easier. These are very simple to make!
1 bag or 1lb of brussel sprouts chopped in half
2 tablespoons of pancetta and/or 2 strips of cooked bacon turned into bacon bits
enough olive oil to coat bottom of pan
1 tablespoon of minced garlic
salt to taste
pepper to taste
Heat olive oil and once it warms, add bacon, garlic & pancetta and fry until mostly cooked through.
Throw in the brussels and season with salt and pepper.
Toss it all together for about 10-15 minutes on medium heat depending on how soft you want them.
Done! Yeah, it’s that easy.
