Ingredients

4 slices bacon
1 medium (1/2 cup) onion, chopped
1 teaspoon firmly packed brown sugar
1 1/2 pounds Brussels sprouts, trimmed, halved lengthwise

Directions

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.

Meanwhile, place Brussels sprouts in 3-quart saucepan; add 1 inch of water. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Cover; reduce heat to low. Cook 8-10 minutes until tender. Drain well.

Add Brussels sprouts to onion in skillet; toss to coat. Cook over medium heat until heated through. Sprinkle with bacon.

Recipe Tip

- Cook bacon ahead of time; drain well. Refrigerate until serving time.

- Cutting Brussels sprouts in half allows butter sauce to penetrate sprouts for great flavor in every bite.

Recipe Comments & Reviews

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).
