The last two weeks were really hectic with work, as well as having friends in town from VA & FL. So, my food supply was down to condiments and a few things leftover from a roommate who just moved out, e.g. bacon, which I never buy.
Grocery shopping finally made it on the priority list (after laundry, cleaning the bathroom, etc.). I wandered into Trader Joe’s – which to be honest, isn’t really my favorite place for groceries – a little out of practice grocery shopping. From afar, my eyes caught a package of fresh cut brussel sprouts. I love brussel sprouts, I just never really know what to do with them besides drown them in garlic butter. An easy recipe was posted by the sprouts – thank you TJ’s:
Brussel sprouts pre-seasoned with black pepper and sea salt. Saute with bacon. Add Gorgonzola cheese.
Take that Rachel Ray! 3 ingredients, 10 minutes. Delish!
I slid a few slices of bacon in a pan with some olive oil. I dumped the brussel sprouts on top. I put a lid over it to keep fat from crackling out. I put it all in a bowl and sprinkled the cheese on top. I let it sit for a few minutes, which turned the cheese into fluffy balls. So good!
