Brussel Sprouts with Bacon

Adapted from Emeril Lagasse’s Bacon Brussel Sprouts on

This was the last tapas served. As you can see, it was well liked. These brussels sprouts are very flavorful. There isn’t a lot of bacon. It adds a lot of flavor but not too much fat:) If you haven’t had brussel sprouts since you were a kids, give these a try:)

1-2 lbs brussel sprouts, cut off hard bottoms and cut in half length-wise
1/2 yellow onion, sliced into thin rings and then in half
4 garlic cloves, coarsely chopped
1/4 cup chicken broth
2 slices of bacon, cooked and chopped
2 T. olive oil
salt and pepper, to taste


In a deep saucepan, brown brussel sprouts in 2 T. olive oil for about 5 minutes. Add onions, garlic, and bacon and cook another 5 minutes. Add chicken broth and cover for 6 minutes. Remove cover and cook on high until almost all the liquid is gone and the sprouts are soft. Be careful not to make them too soft:) Season with salt and pepper
