Brussels Sprouts with Turkey Bacon and Shallots
3 slices of turkey bacon (chopped)
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 shallot, chopped
1 cup chicken broth
Salt and pepper, to your taste
Brown bacon in a skillet over medium high heat. Remove bacon to a paper towel lined plate. Add extra-virgin olive oil to the pan. Add chopped shallot to the pan and saute 1 to 2 minutes. Add Brussels sprouts and coat in oil. Season with salt and pepper. Cook Brussels sprouts 2 to 3 minutes to begin to soften, then add broth. Bring broth to a bubble, cover and reduce heat to medium low. Cook 10 minutes, until tender. Transfer sprouts to a serving dish with a slotted spoon. Chop bacon pieces and sprinkle over your dish!
