Bacon and Balsamic Brussels Sprouts

I love nearly all veggies equally, but my husband was NOT a vegetable enthusiast before we started our Whole30. He told me he “hates” Brussels sprouts and yet he ate all of the half-plate serving of these I gave him to go along with his steak. He even finished the steak last!

Yield: About 4 servings

Time: 20 minutes


  • 4-6 cups Brussels sprouts, de-stemmed and cut in halves or quartered
  • ½ onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ¼ to ½ cup balsamic vinegar
  • ½ pack compliant bacon, chopped roughly
  • 1 tsp pepper


Heat bacon in a large skillet over medium heat. When almost cooked, add garlic and onions and sauté until fragrant and soft.

Add Brussels sprouts and sauté for about five minutes longer, based on desired consistency. Add vinegar when needed to deglaze the pan. Sprinkle pepper onto sprouts after plating and before serving.Balsamic Bacon Brussels Sprouts
