Brussels Sprouts with Caramelized Onions & Bacon
Brussels Sprouts with Caramelized Onion & Bacon
14 brussels sprouts
1 cup onion, sliced
1 tbsp olive oil
1 slice Trader Joe's Center Cut Uncured Bacon
1 tbsp Trader Joe's Parmesan Romano Blend
First prepare the caramelized onions. Cut a large onion into slices, toss in a bowl with 1 tbsp of olive oil and put in a skillet over low heat for one hour, stirring every 10 minutes.
When there is 20 minutes left on the onions, cut the ends off of each sprout and cut in half. Peel off any loose or excess leaves as they will burn as they cook. I like to use an indoor grill pan but you can use a regular skillet.
Put a spray or two of cooking spray in the skillet and sprinkle some coarse black pepper. Place the sprouts cut side down for about 10 minutes then cover to let steam until caramelized or slightly soft.
Cut the bacon into small pieces and add to the skillet with the sprouts. Cover until bacon is fully cooked. Add caramelized onions to sprouts and stir to combine.
Plate the sprouts and sprinkle with 1/2 tbsp of parmesan romano blend per serving.
You know you want some.
