2 pounds of Brussel sprouts trimmed, and cut in half
4 strips of bacon cut into ½ inch pieces
1 tablespoon of olive oil
Salt and Pepper to taste
Add the oil and the bacon to the pan and cook over medium heat until the bacon starts to brown about 3-4 minutes, take the bacon out of the pan and save the oil.
In a 4 qt, pot of salted boiling water parboils the trimmed Brussel sprouts for 3-4 minutes. Then transfer to a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking. When the spouts cool down dry them well with a towel.
Add the Brussel sprouts to the hot bacon oil and cook, stirring well for 5-6 minutes. Add the cooked bacon and cook one more minute stirring well. Add salt and pepper to taste then serve.
