Crispy Brussels Spouts with Bacon & Garlic
- 10-12 brussels sprouts
- 2 slices bacon, minced
- 1 garlic clove, thinly sliced
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 2 tbsp. kosher salt
- sea salt pepper to taste
Cut off the stems of each brussels sprout and remove any bad leaves from them.
Bring a pot of water to a boil and add the salt. Blanch the brussels sprouts for 4 minutes and then drain them. Run drained brussels under cold water to blanch them (this keeps them from continuing to cook so they don't get mushy).
Cut the spouts in half lengthwise.
Heat the olive oil on high. Add bacon and cook for 1 minute. Add brussels sprouts and dry until they start to brown around the edges and the bacon crisps. Add garlic slices and fry 1minute until softened.
Drain brussels sprouts to remove excess oil. Serve hot.
