My friend Angela gave me this holiday hit recipe! Everyone loved it and was asking for the recipe. Brussels sprouts have never been a favorite of mine until now. Beef stock can be used in place of chicken stock. Great side dish with our Easter ham. ENJOY!

Based on a 2,000 calorie diet


  1. Place the bacon, onion, and garlic in a large, deep skillet and cook over medium-high heat until the onions caramelize, 10 to 12 minutes.
  2. Pour the chicken stock into the pan; add the Brussels sprouts. Bring the liquid to a boil while scraping the browned bits of food off of the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon. Stir the mixture so the sprouts are coated in the liquid
  3. Place a cover on the skillet and cook until the sprouts are cooked through yet firm, about 15 minutes.

Just about any vegetable, in my view, is delicious when it's cooked with bacon and garlic and it is here, too. I found using chicken stock a good choice, more flavorful than just water. As for the cooking time, check your sprouts before the directed 15 minutes - I don't think they need that long. In addition, caramelizing of the onions won't happen at med-high heat (they'd BURN at that temp for that long!), and at a lower temperature the bacon won't crisp up at all. I'd say cook both together at a medium temperature until the bacon is cooked to semi-crisp and the onions have softened - add the garlic toward the last minute or so, so that it doesn't burn. Also, give this a good dose of fresh ground pepper.


Ever since I was a child, I have always been under the impression that brussel sprouts are not good. However, now that I'm an adult, I've recently had the desire to give them a second chance. I picked this recipe because anything tastes better with bacon! :) This dish was absolutely delicious, and both my husband and I couldn't get enough! I now have a new appreciation for brussel sprouts. Thank you Angela for changing my mind! I am forever grateful.


This tasted great and was super easy. Also, I didn't need to add any salt or other seasonings. The listed ingredients' flavors married well all on their own.
