  • 2 cups Brussels Sprouts halved
  • 3 slices Bacon
  • ¼ cup Pine Nuts
  • 1 Tbls Balsamic Vinegar
  • ½ tsp Salt
  • ¼ tsp Pepper


  • Heat a medium skillet over low heat and add in the pine nuts. Watch them carefully so they don't burn, just let them lightly toast until a light golden brown color and set them aside
  • Cut your bacon into small pieces and add into the skillet, increase the heat to medium. Once the bacon is almost cooked through, add in the balsamic vinegar. Let the bacon cook with the vinegar for 2-3 minutes and then remove the bacon from the pan
  • Add in a little oil if needed and then add in the halved or quartered brussels sprouts. Let them sit in the pan for 2 minutes before moving them around in the pan. You don't want them to burn, but they should should get a nice rich color. Once they are cooked through, add the bacon and pine nuts back in. Taste and then season with salt and pepper
