Garlic Brussels Sprouts with Crispy Bacon Recipe

  • 1 1/2 pounds fresh Brussels sprouts
  • 8 slices bacon
  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1/2 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons butter
  1. Cut an 'X' in the core end of each Brussels sprout. Set sprouts aside.
  2. Place bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes; drain and cool on paper towels. Crumble.
  3. Heat 1 teaspoon butter and olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat; cook and stir garlic until golden brown, 3 to 5 minutes. Add Brussels sprouts; toss to coat. Stir in broth, salt, and black pepper; cover and cook until Brussels sprouts are tender, 12 to 14 minutes. Drain liquid from pan.
  4. Stir remaining 2 teaspoons butter into Brussels sprouts mixture until melted. Mix in bacon and serve.
