Prepare brussels sprouts: Cut the bottoms off of the brussel sprouts, then depending on size, cut in half (smaller sized) or quarters (larger sized).
Slice the bacon into strips. Then, in a saucepan on high heat melt the butter and place the olive oil and bacon lardons (short strips) into the pan
Cook until the bacon is crispy and the keto fat is rendered out of the bacon.
Add the cut brussel sprouts into the skillet along with bacon, oil and fat – for all you keto minded folks.
Toss all ingredients to coat sprouts and begin to sear.
Add vegetable stock (this will help cook sprouts with the steam).
Cook until stock reduces to almost nothing and sprouts begin to sear.
Swirl with wooden spoon or spatula, scraping all the magical delicious bits from the pan.
Serve on top of parmesan low carb cauliflower mashed.
Optional finishes: drizzle with balsamic vinegar reduction, and/or sprinkle with grated parmesan cheese.
