Servings 4


  • 1 pound Brussels sprouts outer leaves removed, halved or quartered
  • 1 half red onion diced
  • 3 slices bacon cooked (use leftovers, if possible)
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste


  • Turn the heat on under a skillet (use one with a lid) to medium–high heat. Add olive oil and butter to your pan, and let that fat get good and hot.
  • Chop a red onion and add it to the hot pan, then toss in the Brussels sprouts. Give them a toss, and then turn the heat down to medium-low. Add sea salt and freshly ground pepper.
  • Give the Brussels sprouts and diced onion another toss and then snip in your strips of leftover bacon with your kitchen shears into the pan.
  • Remove the pan from the heat, cover, and let it steam for about five minutes.
