Balsamic-Glazed Brussels Sprouts

1 lb fresh Brussels sprouts
1/2 lb bacon strips, cut into 1/2" pieces
half of a medium onion, thinly sliced
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
2 tbsp stone-ground mustard
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/8 tsp salt
1/3 cup soft bread crumbs

1. Cut an X in the core of each sprout. Place in a large saucepan; add 1 inch of water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 8-10 minutes, or until crisp-tender.

2. Meanwhile, cook bacon in a skillet over medium heat until crisp.Using a slotted spoon, remove to paper towels. Drain, reserving 2 tablespoons of drippings. Saute onion in drippings until tender.

3. Stir in vinegar, mustard, garlic powder, salt, bacon and Brussels sprouts; cook for 2-3 minutes longer.

4. Transfer into a broiler-safe dish. Sprinkle with bread crumbs. Broil 4-6 inches from heat for 2-3 minutes or until bread crumbs are golden brown.

Serves 4.


About This Blog

I find recipes everywhere. Online. In magazines. In cookbooks. On the back of boxes. After a while, it got difficult to remember where I found (or stashed) a particular recipe when I wanted to make it a second time. With the goal of wrangling them all in one coherent location that was easy to find and navigate--along with multiple requests from friends for this recipe or that one--this blog was born.
