Quick and easy to prepare, and not a bad way to get the young'uns to eat the much-hated Brussels Sprouts. The sweet & smoky bacon counters the bitterness of the sprouts. And don't use non-fat sour cream - full fat works better.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Add sprouts to boiling water (with decent amount of salt). Boil no longer than three minutes. Remove from pan, draining thoroughly (save 2 tablespoons of the water).
  2. Fry bacon until desired crispiness; remove from grease. You may either cut or crumble bacon. Discard half of grease, leaving the rest in the frying pan.
  3. Add sprouts and bacon to the bacon grease; use a spatula to fold in, coating the sprouts and bacon into the grease for two minutes.
  4. Add sour cream and reserved water; reduce heat to medium and continue to stir for 2-3 minutes. Place in serving bowl, sprinkle with salt and pepper, serving immediately.
