Brussell Sprouts, Pine Nuts & Bacon

Another Farmer's Market find. Fresh, local brussel sprouts and grass fed, nitrate free bacon. YUM! I can't tell you the last time we have had 'real' bacon.

If more moms made brussel sprouts this way, maybe they wouldn't have such a bad rep.

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 garlic clove, sliced thin.

About 1/2 pound of Brussels sprouts, trimmed and quartered
1/4 cup pine nuts
3 strips bacon, cooked and crumbled into bits

Over medium heat, warm the olive oil in a large skillet. Add the garlic slices for one minute.

Add the sprouts in skillet in one layer and sprinkle with salt to taste. Cook, uncovered, until the sprouts are golden brown, about 15 minutes.
Add pine nuts for the last 5 minutes of cooking the sprouts.
Sprinkle bacon bits over sprouts.
