  • 1 lb Brussels sprouts (fresh or frozen)
  • 1/2 Red onion (large, diced)
  • 4 strips bacon (roughly chopped)
  • 1 tbsp Butter
  • Balsamic vinegar
  • Cracked black pepper


  1. Toss raw, diced bacon into a large pan and begin to brown. Stir frequently.
  2. Meanwhile, steam Brussels sprouts. I steamed my frozen Brussels sprouts in the microwave for about four minutes on high, but you could also use the stove, especially if you’re using fresh Brussels sprouts. Be careful not to overcook.
  3. Once the bacon begins to brown, add diced red onion to the pan.
  4. Add tbsp of butter to the pan and cook on medium until the onion becomes translucent. The bacon should be nearing a crisp state.
  5. Once bacon is crisp, onions are translucent, and butter is melted, toss the steamed Brussels sprouts into the pan and stir gently. Allow the entire dish to warm through.
  6. Once warmed through, splash the entire dish with balsamic vinegar and fresh cracked pepper.
  7. Serve hot. Enjoy!
