Weekday Dinner Recipe

Sauteed Brussels Sprouts and Crumbled Bacon Bowl

Serves 4

Ingredients

  • 1.5 pounds of Brussels sprouts
  • 5 slices of bacon
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon garlic salt
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 3 cups of trimmed kale

Directions

  1. In a large pan, fry 5 slices of bacon on high heat for 4-6 minutes, turning bacon twice until browned. While bacon is frying, wash the Brussels sprouts and kale, and trim on a cutting board. Set aside.
  2. Once crispy and cooked, remove bacon with tongs and pat dry with a paper towel. Set aside.
  3. In the same large pan (bacon grease included), add in halved Brussels sprouts, sea salt, black pepper, garlic salt and lemon juice. Sautee on medium-high heat for 10-12 minutes, stirring often.
  4. Once Brussels sprouts have browned, add in kale and crumbled bacon, then stir for 1-2 additional minutes to coat.
  5. Serve with additional lemon wedges to taste.

Expecting a crowd or a weekend feast? Serve as a side dish and let this baked eggplant parmesan take center stage. Whatever you do, don’t forget the wine! We paired our dish with Cambria’s Benchbreak Pinot Noir and a hickory table full of love.

Happy dinner hour, friends!
