Parmesan Brussels Sprouts With Turkey Bacon and Red Onion

These three simple ingredients are used to add a nice subtle flavor to this side dish.


2 cups of washed, stems trimmed and halved Brussels sprouts,
1/3 cup diced red onion
2 slices turkey bacon (*use a gluten-free brand such as Trader Joes or Jennie-O if you are on a gluten free diet)
ICB spray or olive oil using olive oil sprayer (if both n/a use 2 teaspoons of olive oil)
2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese(*use a gluten-free brand such as Trader Joes if you are on a gluten free diet)


Cook the Brussels sprouts until almost done- they can be cooked by either boiling them in a pot of water, steaming in a pyrex dish in an half inch of water, or even quicker, put them in a Glad® Simply Cooking™ Microwave Steaming Bag and heat on high for about 4 minutes. Meanwhile, spray a medium sized pan with ICB or olive oil (1 teaspoon lightly drizzled or sprayed on to the pan using olive oil sprayer) and put on medium heat. Add the onion and turkey bacon and sauté for until just before they get brown, about 5-7 minutes. Throw in the cooked Brussels sprout halves and spray a few times more with ICB or olive oil sprayer (or drizzle with another teaspoon of oil) and sauté until the Brussels sprouts are lightly browned and tender. Top with parmesan cheese and serve.

Note : you can serve this dish hot, it is also nice at room temp or cold topped with Maple Mustard Vinaigrette
