  • Cook Time: 15 mins
  • Total Time: 15 mins
  • Yield: 3-4 servings 1x


These brussels sprouts are pan-fried with crumbled bacon and butter for a light and flavorful side dish!


  • 2 pieces of bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon garlic, minced
  • 12 ounces fresh brussels sprouts, rinsed and halved lengthwise
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Freshly grated parmesan cheese (optional garnish)


  1. Cook bacon, let cool and crumble. Set aside.
  2. In a large pan over medium heat, add olive oil and butter.
  3. Once butter is melted, add minced garlic and stir constantly for a minute.
  4. Add brussels sprouts, cut side down, in a single layer. Cover and let cook for 5 minutes without stirring.
  5. Add crumbled bacon, stir lightly, and cover to cook another 5 minutes (without stirring) or until brussels sprouts are fork tender.
  6. Add salt and/or pepper to taste and serve topped with freshly grated parmesan cheese. Enjoy!


This dish is easily made vegan by omitting cheese and bacon, and using a butter substitute.
