I found a recipe for Sauteed Brussels Sprouts with Bacon and I decided to turn this simple and quick side dish into an easy main dish for us to eat.
Wash the Brussels sprouts. Cut the Brussels sprouts into quarters, cutting from the top of the sprout to the bottom (not horizontally). Set aside.
Cook the bacon in a large skillet over medium heat until crisp, about 7-10 minutes. When done, discard about 1/4 of the rendered fat. Keep the remaining in the skillet along with the bacon. Stir in the shallots and saute over medium heat until tender and caramelized, 3-5 minutes.
Add the sprouts and 1/4 cup of water to the pan. Season with salt and pepper, turn the heat to medium, and cook covered and undisturbed for about 3-5 minutes. Sprouts should be nearly tender.
When the sprouts are ready, uncover and turn the heat to medium-high. Cook until excess water has evaporated and sprouts have reached desired tenderness – but do not overcook. Remove from heat. Stir in the cooked pasta, balsamic vinegar, thyme, and additional salt (if desired).
Serve immediately and top with freshly grated Parmesan.
Nancy is the Coupon Clipping Cook, which means she not only has an astounding number of recipes to share with us (her TK recipe box is busting at the seams!) but she's also got loads of money-saving tips in her blog (she worked at a grocery store for a number of years, so she knows her stuff). She has some pretty amazing creations, like Roasted Garlic Potato Soup and Nutty Coconut Chicken. Go check them out!
