Caramelized onion and crisp bacon adds a whole new flavor to a fall favorite - Brussels sprouts. This recipe makes a perfect side dish for your next holiday dinner!
Cook bacon in medium nonstick skillet until crisp. Drain. Crumble; set aside.
Discard bacon drippings. In same skillet, melt butter over medium heat; add onion and sugar. Cook 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until onions are tender and caramelized.

My family loves this dish. I would have given it a 5 star rating except it called for discarding bacon drippings.THAT is criminal. I coat the bacon with 1/2 cup brown sugar and bake on a cookie sheet in the oven. Less grease, just enough to saute the sprouts. . I do not boil my sprouts in water, either. Weakens the flavor of the sprouts and makes them mushy...yuck. I saute the sprouts in bacon drippings with lid on til they are tender, add onion,Land of Lakes butter as desired (its the only butter I will have in the house) and crumbled up candied bacon strips. Cover. Cook for about 10 minutes stirring occasionally. And serve. Delicious. I let the family salt as they desire as I do not need any more salt than what is on the bacon.
My husband, a Brussell sprouts fan, flipped over this recipe. Followed it exactly and it was very easy. This has become my go to recipe for Brussell sprouts!
This was superb!!
very easy to make and tastes great if you like brussel sprouts.
This was an excellent and quick side dish. I will make it many more times.
i would reserve a bit of the bacon drippings and saute the brussels sprouts in that, leaving the lid on for the first few minutes to steam the sprouts a little before browning them in the pan. (you could even add the smallest amount of sugar-around a half teaspoon- to promote the carmelization of the sprouts).
