A November Delight: Brussels Sprouts with Bacon

November 15, 2023

As November rolls in with its crisp air and the scent of autumn, our palates anticipate the warmth and comfort of seasonal dishes. One such classic is "Brussels Sprouts with Bacon." Originating from the rich culinary traditions of fall, this dish brings together the earthy goodness of Brussels sprouts with the smoky, savory delight of bacon. November marks the peak of Brussels sprouts season. These mini-cabbages thrive in the cool temperatures of fall, developing a sweet and nutty flavor. The pairing with bacon not only enhances the dish's richness but also complements the inherent bitterness of Brussels sprouts, creating a harmonious balance that captures the essence of autumn.


Here is a warm recipe for Brussels Sprouts with Bacon!



- 1 lb Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved

- 4 slices of bacon, chopped

- 1 tablespoon olive oil

- Salt and pepper to taste

- Optional: Balsamic glaze for drizzling


  1. In a large skillet, cook the chopped bacon until crispy. Remove and set aside, leaving the bacon drippings in the pan.
  2. Add olive oil to the skillet and heat over medium-high heat.
  3. Add the Brussels sprouts to the pan, cut side down. Cook without stirring for 5-7 minutes or until golden brown.
  4. Stir the Brussels sprouts and continue cooking until they are tender-crisp.
  5. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Toss the crispy bacon back in, mixing well.
  7. Optional: Drizzle with balsamic glaze for an extra layer of flavor.
  8. Serve warm and enjoy the perfect blend of smoky bacon and caramelized Brussels sprouts.
