Brussels sprouts with bacon and herbs

Brussels sprouts with bacon and herbs

Unlike the more standard roasting or steaming of brussels sprouts, this recipe utilizes the braising technique. ¬†They are browned in a little butter and oil and then slowly simmered with some good chicken stock (or turkey stock if it’s on hand this time of year). ¬†Combined with some bacon (always a good friend of a green vegetable), some shallots, and a few herbs, these edible buds are fork tender and quite possibly capable of winning over a few of those curled up noses at the table.
