Brussels Sprouts sautéed with Bacon and Apples

Brussels Sprouts sauteed with Bacon and Apples

1 pint brussels sprouts
3 cups water
1 cup milk
2 teaspoons salt
4 slices bacon
1 apple, peeled and cored, small dice
1 tablespoon lemon juice
salt and pepper, to taste

Cut an x in the bottom of each brussels sprout to allow the cooking liquid to penetrate the inside of the sprout.

Combine the water, milk, and salt in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil, add the brussels sprouts and reduce to a simmer. Cook for 7-8 minutes or until soft.

In a sauté pan over medium-low heat, cook the bacon until crisp. Crumble the bacon and set aside. Keep the bacon fat.

Once the brussels sprouts are cooked, reheat the sauté pan and the reserved bacon fat. Sauté the brussels sprouts and apple in bacon fat until heated through.

Add crumbled bacon, lemon juice, salt and pepper.
