- 4 cups brussel sprouts, washed and stems trimmed
- 1/4 cup dried sweet cherries
- 1 slice bacon, cut into lardons, ~ 1/2" x 1/2"
- Salt and pepper to taste
Slice the brussel sprouts thinly using a food processor. If you don't have a food processor, cut the sprouts into quarters through the stem. In a large skillet brown the lardons on medium low heat. Remove the browned bacon and set aside. Heat the bacon fat, on high heat, add the brussel sprouts and cook for 3 minutes. You do not want to over cook the sprouts, ideally cook them until they begin to wilt but still retain their bright green/yellow color. Season the sprouts with salt and pepper and add the dried cherries. Plate the dish and top with the crispy bacon.
