Try this bacon, beans & greens for similar flavors to this dish. And of course I have low carb version of this dish where I use cauliflower instead of potatoes.
Let’s Make Some Bacon, Brussels Sprouts & Potatoes!
This recipe is quite simple. I use Applewood Smoked Uncured Bacon from Aldi’s. It has no nitrites or nitrates and it’s delicious, not to mention inexpensive! I cut that up into pieces and fry it in a pan.
This renders the grease to cook the potatoes and Brussels sprouts.
Meanwhile I steam some brussels in the microwave for 4 minutes. I love this microwave steamer to precook vegetables in the microwave. It really saves time and ensures that you veggies will be cooked through.
Lastly I put a few potatoes in the microwave and cook for 4 minutes too. I used mini potatoes today that I got at Aldi. I just had to cut them in half instead of chopping a whole potato.
Once the bacon is done, take it out of the pan but add in the precooked Brussels sprouts and potatoes. Brown them in the bacon grease for about 5 minutes and then add in the crumbled bacon before serving.
Well I hope you give this one a try because they really are delicious but then isn’t anything that has bacon in it? Enjoy!
