This is a great recipe anytime of the year but the colors remind me of the fall.

This recipe is healthy, tasty, and simple to make – even the grand kids like it.


3 slices bacon, cut into 1 inch pieces

1 lb. Brussels sprouts, trimmed; halved

1 medium sweet apple, cut into 1-inch chunks

½ cup unsweetened applesauce

¼ teaspoon kosher salt

¼ teaspoon pepper


  1. Preheat large sauté pan on medium 2-3 minutes.  Add bacon; cook and stir 4-5 minutes or until crisp.  Remove bacon from pan.
  2. Increase heat to medium-high. Add Brussels sprouts and apples; cook 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until Brussels sprouts are tender.  Remove pan from heat.  Stir in applesauce, salt, pepper, and bacon.
  3. I cook the Brussels sprouts a little before adding the apples as we like them cooked a little more.  Your choice.
