How To Make brussels sprouts with easy hot bacon dressing

  • Steaming the Brussels sprouts.
    Steam Brussels sprouts in microwave for about 1 minute less than the package instructions.
  • Frying bacon in a skillet.
    Meanwhile, heat large frying pan, add olive oil and heat. Add bacon and crisp up.
  • Onions and seasoning added to the skillet.
    Add onions, celery salt, and dill seed. Stir until heated through and some of the water has steamed off. (This will de-crisp the bacon)

    Add apple cider vinegar (or other vinegar of your choice) and the brown sugar. Stir until all ingredients are combined and bubbly.
  • Brussels sprouts added to the skillet.
    Add Brussels sprouts and stir thoroughly to cover. Serve and enjoy!
