Truth be told, this should probably feed 4 when you have other sides and protein. When I served this for dinner, my husband and I ate it all. This is very easy to make and I loved all the ingredients together.
You need the following:
Brussel Sprouts- 1 Lb- halved and trimmed
4 pieces of Bacon- cut into pieces (about half an inch)
1/2 of a largeRed Onion
7 Pitted Dates - Chopped up
Olive Oil- 2 Tbs
I used my le creuset for this one. Put the heat on medium-high with 1 tbs of olive oil. Cook the bacon for about 5 min. Don't worry about the bacon getting crispy at this point.
Add the Red Onion and garlic with the bacon and bacon fat until fragrant. Add the brussel sprouts and left over olive oil (1 TBS) let them cook until soft. This will take about 10 minutes.
Stir in the Dates at the end before taking off the stove. Just to get them a little warm.
