10 brussel sprouts stems cut of and halved, 1 small chopped onion, 2 minced cloves of garlic or 1/2 a minced clove of elephant garlic, 4 diced slices of bacon, a pinch of salt and fresh ground pepper to taste.
Heat a fry pan and throw in the chopped bacon. Saute the bacon for a few minutes and then throw in the onions and garlic. Saute that for a few more minutes and then throw in a pinch of salt and some fresh ground pepper. Once the brussel spouts start to brown and get tender, they are ready!
I have to say that these brussel sprouts were so good and tasty and I had no "side effects", although I did call my Mom and joke with her about how terrible I felt and it was the brussel sprouts fault :)
All joking aside I will definitely be making these again and in many more creative ways.
