18 Nov Recipe Alert: Brussels Sprouts with Bacon and Onion
At The Doe Fund, we believe in pursuing a life of balance in mind, body, and soul. Accordingly, we believe in both the importance of a healthy diet and in the value treating ourselves once in a while. We hope our recipe for Brussels sprouts with bacon and onion, both healthy and indulgent, will stand as a delicious example of such balance. While Brussels sprouts often get a bad reputation, the addition of bacon and onion elevates their earthy undertones and yields a balanced yet decadent winter dish.
(Makes 4 servings)
4 cups Brussels sprouts
1 cup uncooked diced bacon
1 onion, diced
Salt and black pepper
Cook the Brussels sprouts in a large pot of boiling salted water for 6-8 minutes. Drain and set aside. Cook the bacon at a low temperate, rendering until golden. Remove the bacon from the fat, and discard the fat. In the same pan, sauté the onion until golden. Add the bacon and Brussels sprouts and season with salt and pepper to taste. Continue cooking for 4-6 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Serve heated and enjoy!
