Brussels Sprouts with Bacon, Garlic, and Shallots



  • 6 slices center-cut bacon, chopped 
  • ½ cup sliced shallot (about 1 large) 
  • 1 ½ pounds Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved 
  • 6 garlic cloves, thinly sliced 
  • ¾ cup fat-free, lower-sodium chicken broth 
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt 
  • ⅛ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


  1. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add bacon, and sauté for 5 minutes or until bacon begins to brown. Remove pan from heat. Remove the bacon from pan with a slotted spoon, reserving 1 tablespoon drippings in pan (discard the remaining drippings).
  2. Return pan to medium-high heat, and stir in bacon, shallot, and Brussels sprouts; sauté 4 minutes. Add garlic, and sauté for 4 minutes or until garlic begins to brown, stirring frequently. Add the chicken broth, and bring to a boil. Cook for 2 minutes or until the broth mostly evaporates and the sprouts are crisp-tender, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat; stir in salt and pepper.
