My parents are in town, and you know what that means...good eats! Here's the side from our first dinner together.
About 10 large Brussels Sprouts
5 strips of bacon, diced
1 large garlic clove, minced or pressed
¼ cup coarsely chopped pecans
Crumbled goat cheese (about 3 oz or to your liking)
Salt, season to taste
Prepare Brussels Sprouts but removing outer leaves and cutting in half. Steam for about 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a frying pan cook diced bacon until crispy. Add steamed Brussels Sprouts, garlic and pecans; toss, coating Brussels Sprouts in bacon grease. Season with salt, to taste.
Serve and top with crumbled goat cheese. Enjoy with grilled fish and garlic bread.
Variations:· Substitute pecans for walnuts or pine nuts
· Substitute goat cheese for feta cheese
