Yummy Brussels Sprouts With Bacon & Onion

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!!!


  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.

Have made this recipe twice so far, making it again tonight. The second time I added some minced garlic which gave it an added bonus. Great recipe... thanks for sharing!

Love these. You can add the same bacon/onion combo to green beans, spinach, almost any vegetable. Add a little grated parmesan also to really punch up the flavor

I love brussels sprouts! I didn't have an onion so I used some onion salt and a pinch of garlic powder, very good subs. I'm kinda glad that my DH doesn't eat brussels sprouts so I can have the leftovers! I could make a meal off these and hot cornbread!
