Pan Seared Brussels Sprouts with Crispy Bacon

I love vegetables so I am always cooking some. I usually eat whatever I see, and whatever strikes me fancy in the grocery store 😉 Today, I cooked brussels sprout because they are actually something my husband would eat.

Ingredients: 1 pack of brussels sprouts, 4 slices of bacon, salt and pepper.

Rinse the brussels sprouts  in water with a little bit of vinegar. Remove the outer leaves of the brussels sprout if they are damaged. Place them in the large round mold, add 1 tsp of water mixed with 1/8 tsp of salt. Cover the large round mold with the octogonal silpat and microwave for 5 minutes. The brussels sprouts should be cooked but still firm ( I don’t like them too soft). Cut them in half. While they are cooking in the microwave, cook the bacon in a frying pan until it becomes crispy. Remove the bacon pieces from the frying pan. Keep 1 tbsp of bacon fat and discard the rest. In a frying pan, place the 1 tsbp of bacon fat and turn the heat to medium high. When the bacon fat is sizzling, add the brussels sprouts, the cooked bacon and cook the sprouts for a few minutes stirring constantly so that they will not burn. Season with salt and pepper. Add 1 tsp. of chopped parsley. Et voila!!

Bon Appetit and Happy Cooking!!!
