Check out this mind-blowing Brussels sprouts recipe.



    • 5 Bacon strips, chopped
    • 1 pound fresh brussels sprouts, trimmed
    • 3 tablespoons butter
    • 1/2 cup chicken broth
    • 1/4 cup chopped pecans
    • 1/4 cup maple syrup
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper



  • In a small skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Remove to paper towels with a slotted spoon; drain.
  • Meanwhile, cut an “X” in the core of each Brussels sprout. In a large skillet, saute brussels sprouts in butter for 4-5 minutes or until lightly browned.

Stir in the broth, pecans, maple syrup, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 5 minutes. Uncover; cook and stir 8-10 minutes longer or until Brussels sprouts are tender. Sprinkle with bacon. Yield: 4 servings.
