Brussels Sprouts with Bacon & Apple Cider Vinegar

        So my daughter and I finished off over half of these Brussels Sprouts standing up by the stove eating them out of the pan.  My 4 year old is the pickiest child on the planet and he scarfed these down faster than you can say, 'chicken nugget!'  They were absolutely DELICIOUS and I KNEW right away, that these will be made and enjoyed weekly! It is a KEEPER!!!!  <3

Brussels Sprouts with Bacon & Apple Cider Vinegar
2 lbs frozen brussels sprouts, thawed enough to slice in half
1/2 lb of bacon, sliced raw
1 to 2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar (We use 2 Tbsp, but others may like less)
1/2 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
Slice brussels sprouts in half from top through core.  Add the brussels sprouts to a pot of boiling, salted water.  Allow to boil for 4 minutes.  (no more!)  Drain and rinse under cold water to stop the cooking process.  Meanwhile, brown the chopped bacon extra crispy in a large skillet.  Remove bacon from pan with a slotted spoon and leave drippings in pan.  Make sure the pan is over medium high heat and add in the brussels sprouts.  Brown them for 10 minutes, only turning a couple of times.  You want them to brown some and not break up TOO much.  Brown food is good!  After the brussels sprouts are crispy around the edges and brown enough for your liking, add the apple cider vinegar, salt and pepper.  Sprinkle with cooked bacon and serve!  <3
