  • 1/2 lb bacon chopped
  • 1 lb Brussels sprouts trimmed and halved
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp spicy brown mustard


  • Heat a large, wide skillet over medium heat and add the bacon. Saute and let the fat render down. When bacon has become "chewy-crispy," remove it from the pan using a slotted spoon and set aside.
  • Add the brussels sprouts to the pan, and give a quick stir to coat with the bacon fat. Season with salt and pepper. Saute until the brussels begin to turn golden brown. Cover for 5 minutes.
  • Remove lid. Sprinkle brown sugar over pan and add mustard. Reduce heat to low, then gently stir to combine and coat the brussels until the brown sugar has melted.
  • Return bacon to pan, and toss to combine. Serve hot.
