Here is a side dish you will probably initially react poorly too, but it’s good I promise you! Just don’t ask my daughter we’re working on her – but you can ask everyone else… 🙂
1lb Brussel sprouts, quartered
5 slices of bacon, chopped
1/4 c. pine nuts
1/2 c. chicken broth
2T. balsamic vinegar (or cider vinegar if you like sweeter)
Blanch the brussel sprouts 4 minutes. sauté the bacon until crisp, remove from pan. Drain off half the grease leave the rest in the pan. Add brussel sprouts and stir to coat in the bacon grease. Add chicken broth and sauté until the broth is all evaporated and brussel sprouts begin to brown a bit. Add pine nuts and sauté until toasted. Add vinegar until completely evaporated.
Serve! So much better than you thought brussel sprouts could be! 🙂 My mom and sister-in-law don’t like brussel sprouts and were hesitant but now they rave about them and eat an entire serving!
Everything is better with bacon!
