Scrumptious (Fresh) Sauteed Brussels Sprouts

Sharing is caring!

I absolutely love brussels sprouts. I mean love them!

A few weeks ago we signed up for a local organic produce delivery service. I am in love with this service as much as I am in love with brussels sprouts.

Let me show you how easy they are to cook on the stove top. They pair perfectly with so many meals! (Make sure you check out all of my easy recipes while you’e here.)

sauteed Brussels sprouts


  • 1 lb of fresh brussels sprouts, cleaned
  • half a small onion, diced
  • 2 T olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced (I use the jarred stuff)
  • 1 t Kosher salt
  • fresh cracked pepper (I do about 5 cracks)
  • 2 slices cooked bacon, crumbled


Slice all of the sprouts in half length-wise. (You cleaned them first, right?)

In a large skillet, add your olive oil, onion and garlic. Sauteed over med-low heat for about 2 minutes.

Toss in your sprouts. Stir and coat them in the olive oil/onion/garlic mixture.

Add the Kosher salt and a cracks of fresh pepper.

Sautee over med-low heat for about 10 minutes or until they reach the desired tenderness.

Finally, toss in the crumbled cooked bacon. Mix well coating everything evenly together.

All of these flavors are amazing together, let me tell you!

Wait no, it is scrumptious! And easy. And healthy! Brussels sprouts are so good for you!
