Brussels Sprouts with Bacon

  • 6 strips raw bacon (thin- or thick-cut), roughly chopped
  • 1 medium onion, chopped (yellow sweet recommended)
  • 3 tablespoons margarine or butter
  • 2 lbs Brussels sprouts (if frozen, partially thawed)
  • Seasoned salt and pepper to taste


  1. In a large saucepan (14×2-inch with flat sides is what I use), place chopped bacon in a single layer and fry until crispy. Using a slotted spoon against the side of the pan, gather bacon and remove to container, keeping as much of the drippings in the pan as possible.
  2. Add margarine or butter to pan and melt.
  3. Add onions to pan. Lightly sprinkle with seasoned salt and pepper, and saute until almost caramelized. (If using thick-cut bacon, you may consider omitting the seasoned salt.)
  4. Add Brussels sprouts. Lightly sprinkle sprouts with seasoned salt and pepper. Cook covered for 4 to 5 minutes.
  5. Remove cover. Increase to medium-high heat. Cook until desired browning is achieved.
  6. Add bacon back to dish. Stir, and serve immediately.
