Everyone should try my Easy Brussels Sprouts with Bacon and garlic at least once because that is all it will take for you to want to make them again. These Brussels Sprouts with garlic and bacon are my go-to way to cook Brussels Sprouts for Christmas… and all year long too. Adding garlic to the Bacon Brussels Sprouts add extra flavour and bite to the dish.

Remove the outer layer of the Brussels Sprouts and cut a cross in the bottom of each one. Only cut down a few millimetres.
Bring a pan of water to the boil and add the sprouts in.
Cook for 5 minutes until a knife can easily slice in.
Remove from the heat and plunge into cold water to stop them cooking. Allow to cool and remove them from the water and pop into a bowl until you need them.
Thinly slice the slices of bacon.
Thinly chop or crush the garlic.
In a frying pan melt a table spoon of butter on a low to medium heat. Add the Brussels Sprouts, bacon and a small pinch of salt and allow to cook and warm up.
Reduce the heat and add in the garlic and stir into the Brussels Sprouts. Allow them to soften but not burn.
Cook for a few minutes until the Brussels Sprouts are warm and the bacon and garlic has cooked.
Serve straight away and enjoy.
You can cook the Brussels Sprouts in advance of frying them to save time. I would recommend doing them earlier on the same day you need them.
