Side Dish: Maple Bacon Brussel Sprouts

Is there anything better than the combination of salty and sweet?

In my opinion?  No.

If someone had told me years ago that Brussel sprouts would become pretty much my favorite vegetable, I would have laughed in their faces.

And yet here we are.  I LOVE them.

This side dish is the perfect combination of sweet from pure maple syrup, and salty from the turkey bacon.

This recipe makes one serving but could easily be doubled or tripled for a larger group!

Maple Bacon Brussel Sprouts

1 cup Brussel sprouts, chopped
1 slice turkey bacon
1 tsp. coconut oil
2 tsp. pure maple syrup
Salt and pepper

In a nonstick pan, cook bacon until crisp.  Remove from pan.

Add coconut oil to pan, and once melted, add Brussel sprouts.  Season with salt and pepper.  Cook on medium heat for about 4 minutes.  Crumble bacon and add back into pan.  Add the maple syrup and cook for another minute.

Serve and enjoy!
