This is a brussel sprout recipe everyone will love. These Sauteed Brussel Sprouts are made with bacon and dried cranberries. This recipe is savory and sweet with tons of flavor. It makes for any great side dish.
Brussel Sprout was not a vegetable that was prepared for us growing up. In fact, I haven’t had Brussel Sprouts for the first time well within my twenties. Although I can’t remember the exact dish or where I was when I tried them for the first time, I do remember thinking they weren’t so bad. Sure the smell isn’t great and they can be a bit bitter, but if you add delicious flavor and add some friends to the dish, they could be quite delicious.
So let’s talk about adding flavor.
Of course, it’s only natural to add the bacon to the dish for texture and some fun, but because bacon can be a bit salt and the Brussel Sprouts are a bit bitter, we need something to lighten the mood and I immediately thought of dried cranberries. The pop of sweetness is going to be a nice compliment to the rest of the payer in this dish. Combining all of these flavors together makes for this Sauteed Brussel Sprouts with Bacon and Dried Cranberries a great side dish.
If you don’t prefer dried cranberries, you can use pomegranate seeds and also add some chopped walnut for added texture and healthy stuff!
