Pan Roasted Brussels Sprouts w/ Bacon

Brussels Sprouts are something that for the life of me I could not make myself eat until I was a grown up. I could not wrap my head around any sort of fact that they were good for me or even worse, they might actually taste good. Well we all know the age of rule of thumb, if something doesn’t taste right naturally, fry it or Add Bacon. In this case we are going to choose the latter and roll with the punches.
Crispy bacon adds a great flavor as well as texture to Brussels Sprouts.
Serve them alongside a nice steak with Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes or alongside some pan seared Halibut. Those of you who do, will thank me later.
