In The Pretty Kitchen- Brussel Sprouts with Bacon {recipe}

Recently we have been trying to eat healthier, this means no processed foods, no cream soups, more fresh fruits and veggies, lean meats, etc. you get the picture. I am pretty sure bacon is not a part of "clean eating" but I don't know if I will ever completely stop partaking of this meat candy. That being said these Brussels sprouts are delicious without the bacon but let's be real bacon really does make it better!


-4 Slices of quality bacon
-2 TBSP olive oil
-1 pound of Brussels sprouts
-Salt and Pepper

1- Preheat oven to 375 F
2- Cook bacon in a skillet until it begin to brown, but it's not crispy. Let drain and cool on paper towels
3-Remove the outer leaves and cut the Brussels sprouts in half. Place in a bowl and toss with olive oil, salt and pepper. Make sure they are evenly coated.
4- Pour 2 TBSP of bacon grease over the Brussels sprouts and stir to coat
5- Chop cooled bacon and stir into the Brussels sprouts mixture.
6-Pour Brussels onto a baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes. Stir every 10 minutes to ensure even browning, we don't want any burnt Brussels! 

Don't these look delicious?
