Ingredients

  • 4

    slices bacon, chopped fine

  • 2

    ounces onion, coarsely chopped, a generous ⅓ cup

  • 1

    pound fresh Brussels sprouts, about 12 ounces after trimming

  • ½

    cup water

  • ½

    teaspoon salt

  • 1

    tablespoon butter

  • 1

    tablespoon red wine vinegar

  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Directions

Prepare the Brussels sprouts by trimming the stem ends and any discolored leaves. Cut in half through the stem. In a 12-inch skillet, cook the bacon and onion over medium-low heat until the bacon is crisp and the onion is browned, about 10 minutes. Drain on a paper towel lined plate. Add the Brussels sprouts, water and 1/2 teaspoon salt to the skillet; increase the heat to medium. Cover and simmer until the Brussels sprouts are bright green, about 5-6 minutes. Uncover the pan and cook until the liquid has evaporated and the sprouts are tender, about 3 minutes. Turn off the heat and stir in the bacon, butter and vinegar. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Can be frozen. Per Serving: 100 Calories; 6g Fat; 5g Protein; 8g Carbohydrate; 3g Dietary Fiber; 5g Net Carbs
