Brussels Sprouts with Bacon, Garlic and Shallots submitted by Mom Johnson
From Cooking Light, November 2011

Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the bacon and sauté for 5 minutes or until the bacon begins to brown. Remove pan from heat. Remove bacon with a slotted spoon, reserving 1 T. drippings in the pan. Discard the remaining drippings.

Return the pan to medium-high heat and stir in the bacon, shallot and Brussels sprouts; sauté for 4 minutes. Add the garlic and sauté for 4 more minutes or until the garlic begins to brown, stirring frequently. Add the chicken broth and bring to a boil. Cook for 2 minutes or until the broth mostly evaporates and the sprouts are crisp-tender, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and stir in the salt and pepper. Makes about 6 servings.
