Tasty Tuesday: Bacon-Garlic Brussels Sprouts

December 12, 2017, by Sheila DelCharco

Welcome to Tasty Tuesday, where we share our favorite recipes by linking them all up because sharing is caring!

One of my favorite winter veggies is Brussels Sprouts! I never cared for them growing up but as my tastes changed, I bravely gave them a try and LOVED them! (Well, it helped that they had bacon in them. EVERYTHING is good with bacon!) I don't remember my first recipe but I do know they had bacon. This is an easy recipe that quickly comes together for mid-week cooking but is yummy enough to make for a holiday! (I brought them to Thanksgiving and there was nothing left!)

If you are going to someone's house for a holiday dinner, this is a great dish to bring! Or if you are hosting Christmas then this is an easy dish to prepare!

Bacon-Garlic Brussels Sprouts


6 slices of bacon, chopped
1 large shallot, diced
1.5 lbs of Brussels sprouts, halved
4 small garlic cloves, thinly sliced
1/2 cup white wine (can sub chicken broth)
salt to taste


Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add bacon and saute for 5 minutes or until bacon begins to brown. If there is more than about a tablespoon of fat, skim off and reserve for other uses or discard.

Add shallots and sprouts and saute for 4 minutes. Add garlic and saute for 4 additional minutes, stirring frequently.

When garlic is turning golden, add wine (or broth) and bring to a boil, cooking until broth mostly evaporates, leaving the sprouts tender but with some crunch. Add salt to taste.

Enjoy! Let me know if you try it and how you like it! If you like bacon, try bacon-wrapped dates or apple, bacon, caramelized onions and brie pizza!
