I recently had this at a restaurant in Lutz, Florida. It was served as an appetizer but this could easily be served as a side dish. This recipe can easily be doubled and should be if you serve it as a side dish. What’s not to love? Bacon, Brussel Sprouts, Balsamic glaze and chopped peanuts for crunch.
6 slices of bacon
3 Tablespoons butter
1 pound bag of Brussel Sprouts, I bought a bag of raw, ready to steam, I did NOT steam them, cut them in half
1/2 cup onion, chopped
Salt and pepper to taste (I used sea salt)
1/4 cup dry roasted peanuts, rough chopped
*Balsamic (Vinegar) Glaze, enough to drizzle
Cook bacon in a skillet until crisp. Drain on paper towels, save bacon grease. Melt butter in bacon grease. Add Brussel Sprouts and onion. Cook till tender about 8-10 minutes. I like mine caramelized so I cooked my Brussels on a higher heat. Once cooked, add bacon and crumble it. Drizzle balsamic glaze and place chopped peanuts on top. Enjoy!
*Balsamic Glaze can be purchased at the grocery store where vinegar is sold.
