  • 5 pieces thick-cut bacon
  • 2 cups chopped onion
  • 24 oz. Brussels sprouts cut in half or quarters, depending on size of individual Brussels sprout
  • 1-2 T salted butter
  • 1 cup chicken broth

Spices: (These are just suggested amounts; please adjust for your preference)

  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1/8 tsp crushed red pepper
  • 1/8 tsp ground thyme
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder


  • Cook bacon in large skillet until completely cooked; remove and place on paper towel to cool. In the same pan with the bacon grease, carefully add 1 tablespoon of butter (2 if you are being decadent!) and then add chopped onions. Stir onions around until thoroughly coated with the grease/butter. Add cut Brussels sprouts and cook for 3 minutes. Add chicken stock and spices and cook for 10 minutes. There will still be chicken broth left in the pan, which is delicious, so don't think that this all needs to be absorbed.
  • Serve immediately.
