A little sweet, a little savory, a little tangy and a little cheesy: these Brussels sprouts have it all.
Gruyere and Bacon Brussels Sprouts
6 strips of bacon
1 pound Brussels sprouts
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
½ teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
3 tablespoons maple syrup
1/4 cup gruyere
In a pan over medium-low heat, cook the bacon until very crispy. Transfer to a paper towel, and cool completely, then roughly chop into 1/2-1-inch pieces.
Wash and clean the Brussels sprouts, then trim off the stem and cut in half. In a large, clean pan over medium heat, preheat the butter, then add the Brussels sprouts cut-side down. Season with salt and pepper. Sautée for about 10 minutes, stirring as needed, until the Brussels are browned.
Add in the bacon bits and drizzle with maple syrup, stir and transfer into a bowl. Top with grated gruyere cheese, and serve immediately.
