First Brussel Sprouts of the Season

Brussel Sprouts from the Davis Farmers Market


Saute in a little extra virgin olive oil

... and a little bacon makes everything better!

Clean, trim, and halve the brussel sprouts. Saute some lean bacon in a heavy skillet over medium. Transfer to a paper towel lined plate to drain well. Wipe most of the excess bacon fat from the pan. Add a little olive oil to the pan and let it heat a moment. Add the sprouts and saute to the desired doneness. I don’t like to overcook them, I think that makes them bitter and funky. I usually add some balsamic vinegar, but didn’t last night. Salt and pepper to taste and enjoy!
