Sara - Recipe: Maple Brussel Sprouts Amandine

(This post was inspired by a contest over at Cavegirl Cuisine's website.)

Maple Brussel Sprouts Amandine

2tbsp bacon fat
1/4c blanched, sliced almonds, lightly toasted
8-10 medium brussel sprouts
pinch of black pepper
3tbsp maple syrup
In a pan (that has a lid!), melt 2tbsp bacon fat over medium heat.
While fat melts, remove stems from sprouts and cut them in half, lengthwise.
Once fat has melted, place sprouts in the pan, cut side down. Cover and let cook for 4-5 minutes.
Turn over each brussel sprout in the pan. Sprinkle with a pinch of black pepper and drizzle with maple syrup.
Cover the sprouts and let them cook for another 3-4 minutes.
Place sprouts in a bowl and drizzle with the remaining liquid from the pan. Top with toasted almond slices.
I served this with pan seared steak - SO GOOD.
Even our pickiest eater devoured the sprouts. 
Thank you, Cavegirl, for the inspiration!
