Cooking:
1) On low/medium heat cook bacon in skillet until bacon grease coats the skillet (the saltiness of the bacon takes away from the bitterness of the brussels)

2) Once the bottom of the pan is coated with bacon grease add brussels sprouts

3) Stir the sprouts around in the pan so that the bacon grease is evenly distributed amongst the sprouts

7) After about 15 minutes the sprouts should be tender enough to stick your fork through without being over cooked.
