  • 1/2 lb of brussels sprouts
  •  6 strips of bacon
  • 1 medium red onions chopped
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher salt

Cut the ends of the brussels sprouts and then cut them in half and set aside.

Chop the bacon into small cubes and saute them over medium heat until the bacon is crispy.  Remove the bacon and drain on paper towels.  Remove the bacon fat leaving 2 tablespoons of it in the pan.  Add the olive oil and over medium high heat saute the brussels sprouts for 8-10 minutes allowing them to get crispy brown.  Add the stock and bring to a boil then simmer covered with foil or a lid for 5-8 minutes or until the brussels sprouts are tender.  Remove the brussels sprouts from the pan and place on a plate and sprinkle the bacon bits on top of them.  Enjoy immediately.
