Brussels Sprouts

Sautéed Brussels Sprouts with Bacon

Sometimes it seems that I'm the only person in the world that likes Brussels sprouts.  This recipe may make you like them too.

1½ Lbs
Brussels sprouts with the stems trimmed and cut in half
slices bacon
shallot, finely chopped
1 cup
chicken broth
1 Tbl
olive oil

salt & pepper

Add the olive oil and bacon to a frying pan and place over medium heat.  Cook the bacon until crisp.   Remove the bacon, place it on a paper towel, and break it into bits.  Save the pan drippings.  Add the shallots to the pan and cook until clear.  Add the Brussels sprouts and cook for 3 minutes.  Add the chicken stock, turn the heat up to high, and bring the stock to a boil.  Season with salt and pepper and stir until the stock has evaporated.  Pour everything in a bowl and top with the bacon bits.  Serve.
