Getting tired of the same old side dishes for your weekday meal plans? Brussel sprouts might seem boring, but this recipe is certainly not. Blending just the perfect amount of crispy, fruity & smokey caramelized flavors –You’ll crave this new way to cook your veggies! Oh…and did we mention there’s bacon in it too? Enough said.


  • 1 lb Brussel Sprouts split in half with stems trimmed
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 6 slices bacon, cut into thirds
  • 2 Red apples, cubed
  • 2 TBSP Apple Cider Vinegar


  1. In a 13” skillet, add bacon and bring to medium high heat (Note: adding bacon to a cold pan will allow it to render out more fat as the pan heats, thus giving you a crispier bacon and more fat to cook the brussels in)
  2. Stirring as needed, cook bacon until desired level of crisp has been reached and remove.
  3. With pan still hot, add in brussel sprouts, cut side down and arrange as many into the pan that can fit comfortably face down
  4. Allow brussels to cook for 3-4 minutes on cut side, checking for browning before flipping
  5. Once browned, stir in apple, vinegar and garlic
  6. Reduce heat to medium, continue to stir occasionally and cook until brussels have softened, about 5-7 minutes. Check seasoning and add salt as needed
  7. Serve and Enjoy
