Brussel Sprouts ~ Side Dish

From Natalie:

This is a really nice way to prepare Brussels sprouts.  Very tasty! The kids may even try them!  My daughter helped me make this recipe.


  • 1/2 pound of Brussels sprouts
  • 4 strips of bacon (I used very low-fat turkey bacon)
  • 1 cup of fat-free, low sodium chicken broth
  • Olive oil
  • Jane’s Crazy Salt
  • Ground black pepper
  • Garlic powder

Cook bacon in frying pan.  Take out of pan and place on a paper towel.  Rinse Brussels sprouts and trim off ends.  Cut each one in half. Put a little olive oil on the bottom of the frying pan and add garlic powder. 

Add Brussels sprouts and brown in the oil.  Add salt and ground pepper. (Not too much salt. Although I used low sodium, the broth is salted). 

After the sprouts are brown, about 10 minutes, add the broth.  Simmer about 15 minutes.  Crumble the bacon and add to the pan; simmer approximately 5  more minutes. 

The bacon will get soggy if it is in the pan too long.  The simmering should reduce the broth so that there is very little liquid in the pan.  Enjoy!
