Ingredients: 1lb brussel sprouts, cleaned & trimmed 60z reduced sodium uncured bacon 4- tbsp water Directions: Chop bacon into small pieces (scissors make it easiest) & place into a cold skillet. Heat skillet over medium-high heat, stirring relatively frequently, until bacon is starting to brown & is mostly cooked. Add Brussels sprouts to skillet carefully. Stir relatively frequently. As soon as Brussels sprouts start to stick, add 1-2 tbsp water to the pan. Stir some more. Keep adding small amounts of water every time the brussel sprouts start to stick.
