"Brussels sprouts are misunderstood - probably because most people don't know how to cook them properly." -Todd English, Chef

The refrigerator light goes on...

This is a great recipe for holiday meals: savory bacon, sweet cranberries, and the slightly bitter Brussels sprouts. You can easily make this in the oven using a large skillet or roasting pan to make it an even easier part of your feast.

2 Tbsp. dried sweetened cranberries (finely minced)
fresh ground black pepper to taste

Cranberry Bacon Brussels Sprouts recipe from Dr. Gourmet

Purchase Brussels sprouts on the small side (about an inch wide).

Trim the stems from the Brussels sprouts and then thinly slice crosswise. After slicing, pick through the thin slices and remove any of the tough core.

Place the bacon in a large skillet over high heat.

As the bacon begins to cook, adjust the heat so that the bacon doesn't cook too fast or burn.

Add the cranberries and cook for about 5 minutes. Stir frequently.

Add the brussels sprouts and pepper.

Cook, tossing frequently, for about 5 minutes until the brussels sprouts are lightly wilted.

Serve.
