Provided By
A great vegetable for any time of year. This can easily be made in advance and warmed up just before serving. Be sure to toss the bacon and almonds after so they don't get soft.

  • 1/2 pound lean bacon, finely diced
  • 1 yellow onion, diced (medium)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 pounds Brussels sprouts, trimmed, halved
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 4 tablespoons butter

In a heavy-bottomed pot over medium heat, fry the bacon until crisp. Remove the bacon and drain on paper towels.

Saute the onion and garlic in the bacon fat over low heat until soft, about 3 minutes.

Add the Brussels sprouts and stir them around so that they are coated with the bacon fat and brown slightly. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

Add the broth and cook, covered, over low heat until the sprouts are easily pierced with a fork, about 8-10 minutes.

Stir in the butter and transfer the sprouts to a serving dish. Garnish with bacon bits and almonds and serve.
