Yummy Brussels Sprouts With Bacon & Onion

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by JenJenMarie

I came up with this myself. Since brussels sprouts have a similar flavor to cabbage, I have adapted my cabbage recipe for them. My husband thought he did not like brussels sprouts until I made these. I usually have to do a double batch and we end up fighting over the leftovers!!!

My husband makes this brussel sprout recipe with pancetta and butter! I make my brussels with brown sugar pecans, maple syrup and a little sprinkle of nutmeg!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook brussels sprouts according to package. I steam mine in the microwave.
  2. While sprouts are cooking, in a pot on the stove, cook your bacon and onion together. Cook until bacon and onion are thoroughly done.
  3. Add brussels sprouts to bacon & onion. Add margarine and salt & pepper to taste. When margarine is melted, you are done!
  4. I like to cook mine until the sprouts get a little brown on the bottom.
