Ingredients
  

  • 2 tbsp olive oil divided
  • 4 slices bacon cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 lb brussels sprouts washed, trimmed and cut in half through core
  • 1 small shallot minced
  • 2 tbsp sugar-free maple-flavored syrup
  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 tsp balsamic vinegar
  • salt
  • pepper

Instructions
 

  • Line a plate with a paper towel. Heat a large cast-iron or stainless-steel skillet and 1 tablespoon of the olive oil over medium heat. Add the bacon, cook, stirring occasionally, until the bacon is crispy and browned, 8 to 10 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the bacon to the prepared plate to drain.
  • Keep the skillet on medium heat and add half of the Brussels sprouts cut side down in a single layer, until the cut sides develop a brown sear, about 5 minutes. Remove them to a plate. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil and repeat with the remaining brussels sprouts.
  • Once all of the sprouts are seared, add them all back to the skillet along with the shallots, syrup, mustard, vinegar, 1 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon pepper, and 2 tablespoons water. Stir to combine, reduce heat to low, and simmer, covered and stirring occasionally, until the sprouts are tender when pierced with the tip of a paring knife, about 10 minutes. Stir in the bacon and cook uncovered for 5 minutes. Serve.
