Ingredients
  • 1lb brussel sprouts
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 3 strips of thick-cut bacon
  • 1Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 salt and freshly ground pepperto taste
  • 2Tbsp freshly grated fontina cheese cheese
Instructions
  1. Prepare the brussel sprouts. Pull off off 2-3 outer leaves from the brussel sprouts. Cut off the end part of the stem, leaving some to hold it together. Cut brussel sprouts vertically in half. Wash it well and let it drain in a colander.
  2. Cut bacon to 1/4 inch size. Heat up a skillet or pan on medium heat. Cook the bacon until it is brown. Set it aside in a paper towel to drain the fat. Keep about 1 Tbsp of bacon fat in the pan and discard the rest. Add 1 Tbsp of olive oil in the pan.
  3. Sauté the brussel sprouts in the pan for 2 minutes, tossing occasionally. Then stir in minced garlic. Season with salt and freshly ground pepper to taste. Cook it for about 10 seconds. Cover the pan. The steam will cook the brussel sprouts a little more to fork tender but still has bright green color. DO NOT OVER COOK OR THE COLOR WILL CHANGE YELLOWISH. Uncover the pan and turn off the heat. Sprinkle crispy bacon on top. Add freshly grated fontina cheese on top.
