Brussels Sprouts with Bacon

Brussels Sprouts with Bacon
C proclaimed this his second favorite vegetable I make, only broccoli is better. Miss F was not as thrilled to have Brussels sprouts, but after some bribery, she ate two. And I think she didn't mind them, but at that point, she had put up such a fight, she had to stay strong in her grouchiness. I had originally planned on using fresh Brussels sprouts, but the only ones available were a nearly $10 stalk full of them. I opted for the $1 frozen variety instead, since they were being doused in bacon grease anyhow. They did not disappoint at all, this side will go into regular rotation at our house.
Brussels Sprouts with Bacon

4 slices bacon, chopped
1 package frozen Brussels sprouts, thawed and halved
½ teaspoon salt
Freshly ground black pepper

In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium-high heat until crisp, drain on paper towels, reserving the grease in the pan. Add the brussels sprouts, salt and pepper to the pan and saute for 10 minutes, until brussels sprouts begin to brown. Serve topped with the bacon.
