Best Bacon Sprouts

COOK TIME
10 Min

While these tasty sprouts may resemble tiny cabbage heads, they've got a unique flavor that's all their own! And we think our Best Bacon Sprouts taste even better than the rest, because they're cooked in all your favorite seasonings and finished off with crunchy, yummy, bacon bits!

What You'll Need:
  • 1 pound fresh Brussels sprouts (or one 14-ounce bag frozen, thawed), cut in half
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup bacon bits
What To Do:

 

  1. Place Brussels sprouts in a large saucepan and add enough water to cover; bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium and cook 5 to 7 minutes, or until fork-tender; drain.
     
  2. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat olive oil; brown sprouts with onion, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Add chicken broth and bacon bits and cook 3 to 4 minutes, or until liquid is reduced.

Bacon bits? Like, the kind that comes in a jar? Ew. I assume we can substitute real bacon here.

Hi there! Yes, you can substitute cooked bacon in this recipe. Enjoy!

This looks great for a change in our Thanksgiving table. My question is if you are using frozen brussel sprouts that are completely thawed, would you still need to boil them before adding them to the skillet part of the recipe or do you complete both steps. It just seems like when they are thawed they are going to be pretty tender already.

Hi there! Most of the time, we would recommend not boiling them. Our advice is to make sure that the Brussels sprouts are fork tender before using them in a recipe. Enjoy!

We sure don't mind leftovers of this creamy spaghetti; it's just as good or better the next day. The only problem is that our Layered Spaghetti Casserole is so lip-smacking good, you might not have any left!
