More Lunch Sprouts?

Indeed more lunch sprouts!

What can I say? I adore brussel sprouts and their versatility. I decided on a trial run of some new ingredients that were kicking around the fridge and needed to get used. So here you have it:

Garlic Sprouts with Turkey Bacon & Shallot
Total prep time is 15 minutes, so it's a really quick hot and very healthy lunch... (the turkey bacon is 94% fat free) Or if you're on the go, make it in the morning and pack it - it's really good cold as well.

Ingredients:

  • 1  10 oz pkg frozen brussel sprouts
  • 1 small shallot
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 2 strips turkey bacon
Preparation:

Cook the brussel sprouts according to pkg directions, but not all the way. Keep them firm as they will be going in the skillet later. Mince the shallot and garlic and cut the turkey bacon into small pieces. Sautee these items in a bit of olive oil until the bacon is nicely browned.

When the sprouts are done, drain and then cut them in half. Add to the pan and mix while sauteeing for a few more minutes until the sprouts are partially browned.

Serve as is or with a touch of parmesan.
