Ingredients
  • 1 lb Brussels sprouts, tips and outer leaves removed and quartered
  • 2 Tbsp Nature Nate’s pure honey
  • 2 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • Zest of 1 small lemon
  • 3 slices thick cut bacon, minced
  • ½ cup red onion, diced

Directions

In a small bowl combine honey, vinegar, and lemon zest. Cook bacon in a heavy bottom skillet or wok over medium-high heat 4-5 minutes, then add red onion and continue to cook until onion is tender – about 5 more minutes.

Add Brussels sprouts to the bacon and onions, and cook stirring frequently to brown evenly – about 7 minutes until tender. Season with salt and pepper.

Add prepared honey to the pan to glaze, stirring to coat and finish cooking through – about 2 minutes. Season to taste with additional salt and pepper, and serve.
