Units Scale
  • 6 slices bacon
  • 1 medium sweet onion, sliced
  • 1 lb. Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved
  • Salt
  • Coarse black pepper
  • 2 peaches, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp. maple syrup
  • 1 tsp. lemon juice


  1. In a large frying pan cook the bacon over medium heat until crispy. Remove from heat. Transfer bacon to a plate and discard all but one tablespoon of the fat.
  2. Put pan with bacon fat over medium-high heat. Add the onion, Brussels sprouts, ¼ teaspoon salt and ⅛ teaspoon coarse black pepper. Cook stirring occasionally until sprouts are browning in places and becoming tender, 8-10 minutes. Meanwhile, chop the bacon.
  3. To the browned sprouts add the peaches, bacon and maple syrup. Stir continuously until peaches are heated through, 1-2 minutes. Remove from heat. Add the lemon juice, a pinch or two of salt and a grind of black pepper. Stir gently.
