Brussel Sprouts with Bacon

Until now, when someone asked me what foods I don't like, I would always respond, "Brussel Sprouts". I remember eating them when I was growing up and they always seemed to taste earthy! I decided to try to find a recipe that would allow me to actually like Brussel sprouts since they are so healthy. I can honestly say that I like Brussell Sprouts and now, unfortunately, I can't think of any food I don't like!!
  • 3 Slices bacon, chopped
  • 1 Tablespoone extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 Cloves garlic, minced
  • 1-1/2 Pounds Brussel sprouts, trimmed and halved
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 Cup College Inn chicken broth
Brown bacon in a skillet over medium-high heat. Remove bacon and place on paper towel. Add olive oil to skillet. Add garlic and saute 2 minutes. Add Brussel sprouts and coat in oil. Season with salt and pepper. Cook Brussel sprouts 3 minutes to begin to soften, then add broth. Bring broth to a bubble, cover and reduce heat to medium low. Cook 10 minutes, until tender. Transfer sprouts to a serving dish with a slotted spoon and top with cooked bacon bits.
