Day 6 of 7


This recipe is a Brussels sprout salad.  Now, I know Brussels sprouts have kind of a bad reputation – I’ll be the first to admit I never eat them.  I thought giving them a second chance would be a great choice for this challenge.  THIS MADE BRUSSELS SPROUTS AMAZING!  The recipe was absolutely delicious.  Definitely making this one for dinner more often.  Here’s a picture of a side dish I totally could’ve eaten as ,y whole dinner:



  • 2 center cut bacon slices, diced
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped shallots (1 large shallot)
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 pound Brussels sprouts, trimmed, halved, and thinly sliced (5 cups)
  • 1/4 cup fat free, low sodium chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

Directions (28 min)

  • Cook bacon in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat 3 minutes, stirring often.  Using a slotted spoon, remove bacon, reserving drippings in pan; drain bacon.  Add shallots to drippings in pan; saute 1 to 2 minutes or until lightly browned.  Add butter and Brussels sprouts; saute 3 min.  Add broth; saute 2 min.  Stir in vinegar.
  • Remove pan from heat; stir in pepper and sprinkle with bacon.

Complete success.  Also, to all of you followers out there (thank you first of all) and sorry I blogged twice in one day.  I don’t want anyone to think I am spam blogging, it was just a really long day at work.  Have a nice evening and give these Brussels Sprouts a second try:)
