Ingredients

Instructions

  • Add a few layers of paper towels to a plate and set aside.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat and, once slightly smoking, add the bacon to the pan.
  • Saute and cook until the bacon is crisp and golden brown. About 3-4 minutes.
  • Remove the bacon with a slotted spoon and place on the paper towel lined plate.
  • Pour off all but 1 tbsp of the bacon grease, and place the Brussels sprouts, cut side down, in a single layer in the pan.
  • Cook the Brussels sprouts until they are golden brown and the sugars have caramelized, about 3-5 minutes. Add salt and pepper, 1/3 of the apple cider, and toss and saute until the apple cider has reduced and almost cooked off.
  • Add another 1/3 of the apple cider and toss and saute, as before, until the apple cider has reduced and almost cooked off.
  • Add the last 1/3 of the cider and toss and saute until the cider has reduced and the sprouts have completely cooked through.
  • Add more salt and pepper (if needed), toss the bacon bits back in then add the butter and stir until melted.
  • Serve immediately.
  • Enjoy!
