Keto Brussels Sprouts and Bacon

Keto Brussels Sprouts and Bacon

Keto Brussels Sprouts with Bacon… I don’t know what my favorite word in that sentence is.  I love everything about this recipe, it is seriously one of my personal favorites and makes a delicious side to just about any protein you could pair it with.

Keto sides can be hard, the main part of a keto meal is usually pretty easy.  But a single serving of a ribeye or chicken breast doesn’t exactly make a meal.  Unless I make plans for side dishes I end up with a salmon filet and string cheese, or pulled pork and pecans.  Not that there’s anything wrong with that, but it’s a little bit of a mish mash and not entirely satisfying.

That’s where this super easy and mouthwateringly  delicious side comes in. (I’m not sure if mouthwateringly is a word or not, google says no… but I’ll let you be the judge).  Anyway I’ve talked in the past about being a picky eater for the first ⅔rds of my life and brussels sprouts where a food I missed out on way too long.  I used to call them lilliputian cabbages (I was a weird kid... well read, but weird).  Anyway, if your typically not a brussels sprouts fan, this recipe has the power of bacon to help you through it.  If you already love brussels sprouts then here is just another variation to add to your repertoire.
