Sauteed Brussels Sprouts with Bacon, Onion, and Rosemary

Ingredients:Sauteed Brussels Sprouts with Bacon Onion and Rosemary 2

  • 1 1/2 pounds fresh Brussels sprouts, trimmed
  • 4 slices bacon, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 5-6 green onions, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 sprigs fresh rosemary, chopped finely
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar

Directions:

Bring a large pot of water to a boil. If sprouts are very small, cut in half; otherwise cut into quarters. Cook the sprouts until barely tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Drain.

Meanwhile, cook bacon in a large heavy skillet over medium heat, stirring, until just crisp, 5-6 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon to drain on a paper towel. Pour out all but about 1 tablespoon bacon fat from the pan.

Add olive oil to the pan. Β  Add green onion and garlic and cook, stirring often, until soft but not browned, about 4 minutes. Stir in rosemary, salt and pepper. Increase heat to medium-high, add the Brussels sprouts, and cook, tossing or stirring occasionally, until tender and warmed through and beginning to brown, about 3-5 minutes. Add the bacon and balsamic vinegar. Β Stir an additional minute. Β Pour into serving dish and enjoy!
