So how do I cook these so they are Keto and the kids inhale them?  It is super simple!

I always make these on a day that I cook a lot of bacon for breakfast!


 

Bacon Brussels

2 lbs Brussel Sprouts

1/2 white onion chopped

4-6 cloves garlic

8-10 pieces of bacon with drippings

Salt and Pepper


 

Cook a foil lined cookie sheet of bacon on 375 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes.  I can usually cook 10 to 12 large pieces on a sheet.  You can do more batches of bacon to get more drippings if you like.  I did two batches for 2 pounds of Brussels.  This way you have bacon for breakfast, and the rest left over for dinner!

Remove bacon to a paper towel after it is cooked, and leave all drippings on the cookie sheet.

Rinse and drain your Brussel Sprouts in a colander.

Cut off ends, and throw in the trash.  Quarter the sprouts and place in a large mixing bowl.  These Brussels were huge so I had to cut some of them into eighths.

IMG_0694Dice your onion and peel and mince your garlic.  We like a lot of garlic, but you can adjust to your taste.

IMG_0693Add onion and garlic to your Brussel Sprouts and mix well.

IMG_0692Pour your mixture over your bacon drippings on your cookie sheet and toss to coat.

IMG_0691Add salt and pepper to taste.

IMG_0690IMG_0689Place in the oven at 400 degree for about 15 minutes.

Crumble cooked bacon and toss into the Brussel Sprouts.  Cook an additional 5 minutes, and serve.
