1# brussels sprouts; quartered

8 slices bacon; standard thickness; diced

4 cloves fresh garlic; minced

¼ tsp. nutmeg; ground

Salt & Pepper to taste


Wash and cut sprouts into quarters.  Set aside.

In large skillet, sauté diced bacon and garlic over medium heat for about 4-5 minutes, careful not to burn the garlic.

Add Brussels sprouts and mix well.  Stir occasionally until all sides of the sprouts are a bit browned and the sprout begins to soften.  When almost done, sprinkle with nutmeg and stir to incorporate and cook for another couple of minutes.  Add salt and pepper to taste and serve.
