  • 5 applewood-smoked bacon slices, diced
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/3 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Preparation

  1. 1. Cook Brussels sprouts in boiling salted water to cover 4 minutes; drain. Plunge sprouts into ice water to stop the cooking process; drain.
  2. 2. Cook bacon in a large skillet over medium heat, stirring often, 10 minutes or until crisp; remove bacon, and drain on paper towels, reserving 1 Tbsp. drippings in skillet.
  3. 3. Melt butter in hot drippings over medium-high heat; stir in brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Cook, stirring constantly, 1 minute or until sugar is melted and sauce thickens slightly. Stir in Brussels sprouts; cook, stirring often, 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned. Add salt and pepper to taste.
