Sweet and Savory these brussels are crazy delicious and highly addictive!! The combination of the warm balsamic glaze and crispy bacon send these mini cabbages over the top! Enjoy as a side to any dish.
In a large nonstick pan cook bacon until crispy and transfer bacon to a plate lined with a paper towel and set aside.
Add olive oil into the same pan with the bacon rendering and place the brussels sprouts cut side down in a single layer. Turn heat to medium-high and cook for 5 minutes without flipping them, this will give the brussels a nice toasted brown color. *While waiting on your brussels to cook*: roughly chop 3 slices of bacon and set aside. After 5 minutes, flip the brussels over and lower heat to medium, generously season with salt and pepper. Cook for another 5 minutes or until tender. Set aside until your glaze is ready.
Balsamic Glaze: In a nonstick saucepan over medium-high heat add balsamic vinegar, honey, lemon, and a pinch of salt and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook until vinegar begins to thicken, about 5-6 minutes.
Place brussels sprouts and bacon in a large serving bowl and toss with balsamic glaze. Enjoy!
Tip 1:If you prefer not to use bacon rendering, you can substitute with 2 tbs. olive oil. Tip 2: Sprinkle red chili flakes to add a touch of heat!
