This is a yummy and easy side dish that only utilizes 6 simple ingredients! I made this for my husband and he was stealing sprouts off my plate. I also cooked it in my cast iron skillet which always adds some extra flavor to whatever I cook in it.
1lb Brussel sprouts
Three slices of thick cut, apple smoked bacon (I use uncured nitrate free)
2 tablespoons Olive oil
3 tablespoons Brown sugar
Preheat your oven to 350°F. Remove the stem end of the Brussel sprout and the first outer layer of leaf. Add the Brussel sprouts to your cast iron skillet or oven safe dish. Cut your bacon into chucks and scatter them throughout the sprouts. Coat the sprouts and bacon in olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Top with brown sugar. Put into oven for 20 minutes, tossing halfway through. Serve hot.
