  • 4 slices organic bacon
  • 1 small onion chopped
  • 2 medium tart apples diced (either Pink Ladies or Granny Smith)
  • 1 tbsp organic butter
  • 1/4 cup chopped parsley dill would also be great here!
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Place bacon on a microwave safe plate and cover with a paper towel. Cook bacon for four minutes or until your bacon is nice and crispy.

  • While the onion is cooking place Brussels sprouts in a steamer basket and steam for eight to ten minutes or until they are nice and tender.
  • Once your onions are translucent, toss in your apples and cook for another four to five minutes. You are looking for your apples to get nice brown edges and to become just slightly tender.

  • Once the apples and the onions are ready to go, toss in the Brussels sprouts and season with some salt and pepper. Crumble your bacon over the Brussels sprouts and toss with your parsley. Adjust your seasoning and enjoy!!

If you want to skip the bacon, you can add it some capers for a bright, salty flavor without the meat.
