Pan-Fried Brussel Sprouts with Bacon and Parmesan, a quick and easy way of cooking brussels sprouts in under 10 minutes. No more boring brussels sprouts, this is a delicious side dish, perfect for your Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner menu.
Wash the brussels sprouts and cut them in half.
In a pan, add the bacon lardons and fry until brown.
Remove from the pan and set aside.
In the same pan, add the oil and brussels sprouts and leave to cook for 2-3 minutes, shaking the pan now and then.
Add the garlic and half of the water, place a lid on and leave to cook on a medium heat until the water evaporates, that should take 1-2 minutes.
If the brussels sprouts are not tender enough at this point, add the remaining water, and cook again with the lid on; once the vater evaporates, the sprouts are tender, and slightly caramelised on the edges.
Add the cooked bacon, and parmesan, and remove from the heat.
