I hear a lot of people say they hate this much-maligned little vegetable that looks like a miniature cabbage. I’m sure they’d sing a different tune after tasting Sautéed Brussels Sprouts with Bacon and Shallots. 😊 From Wikipedia: “Brussels sprouts, as with broccoli and other brassicas, contains sulforaphane, a chemical believed to have potent anticancer properties. Although boiling reduces the level of the anticancer compounds, steaming and stir frying don’t result in significant loss.”
This dish is super quick and easy to prepare, and the perfect side for any occasion. Definitely guest-worthy! Furthermore, we love it with everything from burgers to fish. Make quick work of the preparation by using a bag of real bacon bits. If you’re out of shallots, yellow or white onion works just as well.

We also love brussels roasted in browned butter. If you’ve never browned butter, it’s super easy to do in the microwave. The nutty aroma permeates the air and the taste makes eating everything from vegetables and fish to pumpkins seeds an addictive affair. 😋
