Maple Bacon Brussels Sprouts
🦃Gobble Gobble!! I love to do this one for Thanksgiving...or really any day! It pairs well with just about everything! .
Don't be shocked when you want to have these every night! Years ago I fixed these for my 2 nieces who were about 10 years old then, and it's been a favorite ever since! A great way to get kids to eat them, but mine LOVE to pulse them in the food processor too and getting them involved makes them want to try anything they helped with! The touch of maple syrup takes the "bite" out of Brussels sprouts! If you don’t do bacon, you can sub Grass Fed butter or Ghee and finish them with Blue Cheese Crumbles! Slightly blacnhed fresh Green Beans make an awesome addition as well!!!
Maple Bacon Brussels Sprouts 2 lbs. brussels sprouts 3-4 slices uncured bacon (or Grassfed Butter) 1/2 tablespoon real maple syrup
Blue Cheese Crumbles (optional)
Wash the brussels sprouts and chop off the bottoms, some of the outer leaves will come off, which is exactly what you want. Pop them into a food processor and pulse about 5 times. They should be shredded but still chunky. . Cook the bacon on medium/high heat until it begins to brown, then turn it down to medium and keep turning until it is cooked through. Remove to drain on a paper towel. Drain some of the fat off, leaving only enough to nicely coat the pan! Add the brussels sprouts into the bacon fat and toss while cooking on medium heat. As they begin to lighten up, add the maple syrup and continue stirring for about 3-4 minutes. Crumble the bacon and add that to the Brussels sprouts. Stir to combine and serve!
