my last meal of 2010

a couple weeks ago, i had brussel sprouts with my meal at the dakota that left me with a craving for more. i’ve never really cooked them before, so after looking up some brussel sprout hash recipes, i decided just to wing and see what happened. i’m really glad that what happened turned out to really good and hearty!

1 lb fresh brussel sprouts, quartered
3 medium new potatoes, cubed
3 slices bacon (i used fischer farms bacon – local and totally drool-making)
1/2 cup chicken broth
about 2 T olive oil
salt and pepper to taste

start bacon cooking in a big frying pan. while bacon is cooking, boil potatoes in a small pot for about 8 minutes, in a rolling boil – drain and set aside

once the bacon is done, set aside on a paper towel to soak up some of the grease, wipe off the frying pan, add the potatoes and 1 T of olive oil and get them cooking

while the potatoes are frying, you can use the same potato pot for the sprouts – add the chicken stock and sprouts to the pot, cover, bring to light boil and steam sprouts for 10-12 minutes, use tongs to remove the sprouts from the pot and add them directly to the frying pan with the potatoes – add the remaining 1T of olive oil – mix everything up and cook on a medium heat until the veggies have reached your desired consistency

crumble the bacon and add right before eating. salt and pepper to taste.

SO good.
