Yep I went there. I took a healthy vegetable like brussel sprouts and I added bacon and parmesan cheese. Brussel sprouts are one of my favorite vegetables. I love how they look like teeny tiny cabbages. And I love how when you cook them the right way they become almost sweet and very addicting. It probably wasn’t necessary for me to add the bacon and parmesan cheese, but I made these for Christmas dinner and I thought the parmesan cheese would add a little saltiness and the bacon would add a little decadence. This recipe was super simple and the results were delicious!
Start by cooking your diced bacon in a frying pan. When crispy, add the shredded brussel sprouts. Cook for about 4 – 5 minutes. Add pepper.
Add about 3 Tablespoons of water and cover with a lid. Let cook for about 7 – 10 more minutes.
Remove the lid and sprinkle with parmesan cheese. Serve immediately.
1-2 lbs brussel sprouts, shredded
3 slices bacon, diced
3 Tablespoons water
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
In a medium frying pan, cook the diced bacon until crispy. Add shredded brussel sprouts and pepper and saute for about 4 – 5 minutes. Add about 3 Tablespoons water and cover with a lid. Cook for an additional 7 – 10 minutes until the brussel sprouts are tender. Remove the lid, sprinkle with parmesan cheese and serve immediately.
