From the First Laidy...
The other night Ryan and I were in no mood to cook so we went to Dave’s Marketplace to grab something yummy to eat in their prepared foods section. They had brussels sprout hash with bacon and onions in it so obviously we were sold! When we tried it, it was good but we knew we could make it better!!
Here is our list of ingredients:
2 lbs Brussels sprouts (chopped)
6 pieces of bacon
1 large onion
3 turnips (chopped)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees
In large cast iron skillet cook the bacon and then set it aside to be used later. If you got really amazing fatty bacon you will need to drain some of the bacon fat out but keep it close by in case you need to add some later. Then in your bacon fatty pan throw in the chopped onion and brussels sprouts and cook for about 6-8 minutes until you see it start to turn brown. I had to cover mine because we had people coming over and I needed it to be cooked fast! While the onions and sprouts were going we steamed the turnips for about 10 minutes until they were soft and then added them into the skillet. Chop up your strips of bacon and also add then to the skillet (we ended up mashing everything together with a large wooden spoon). After that all that’s left to do is put the entire skillet into the oven for about 10-15 minutes to let everything brown up a bit! I was nervous serving this to our guests because one it was my idea to make this and if it sucked it would be my fault and two this was my first time ever making it and I like to try things first before letting just anyone try it! Lucky for me it was a hit!!! :)
