WebMD Recipe

I kept it light by using just the necessary amount of canola oil, 1 1/2 teaspoons, and crisp turkey bacon to make the little crumbles that top off this dish. I love that this dish is pretty easy to throw together but looks interesting and elegant on a holiday table.

  • 8 cups
    brussels sprout halves, (trim off end of each sprout and cut in half)
  • 4 strips
    turkey bacon, (or similar)
  • 1 tablespoon
    canola oil
  • 1 cup
    shallots, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon
    garlic, minced
  • 3/4 cup
    pecan pieces, lightly toasted in a nonstick frying pan
  • 2 teaspoons
    brown sugar
  1. Micro steam the Brussels sprouts with a couple tablespoons of water until just barely tender (about 6 minutes, depending on your microwave). Watch carefully so they don't overcook. Drain them from any excess water.
  2. Meanwhile, cook the turkey bacon strips over medium-high heat in a large nonstick frying pan coated with canola cooking spray, flipping them often, until crisp. Let them cool on a paper towel and then break them into small bits or pieces.
  3. Add the canola oil to the same pan from the turkey bacon and heat over a medium-high flame. Add the shallots and sauté, stirring frequently, for a couple of minutes. Add the minced garlic and sauté another minute or two or until the shallots are golden. Stir in the Brussels sprout halves and sauté a couple of minutes, stirring occasionally, to char part of the sprouts.
  4. Sprinkle pecans and brown sugar over the top and stir to blend. Reduce heat to medium-low and continue to cook and stir for another minute. Add salt and pepper to taste if desired. Spoon the mixture into a serving bowl and sprinkle turkey bacon bits over the top.
