Brussels sprouts, pancetta topped with a fried egg…what could be better?

I’ll be the first to admit I didn’t eat the greatest food last weekend.  There were lots of burgers (which meant BUNS), chips, and other BBQ fare that left me a little heavier on the scale this morning.  So I decided to keep dinner light, tonight.

Heat a medium sauté pan to medium high heat.  Add a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil and let heat for a minute or two.  Next, add 1/4 cup of diced pancetta, 1 clove of garlic that’s been minced, and a cup of Brussels sprouts that have been cleaned and cut in half.  Lastly, add some red pepper flakes for some heat, if you like.  Season with salt and pepper and cook for about 20 minutes or until the Brussels sprouts have lightly carmelized.  In a separate pan, fry an egg lightly keeping the yolk runny, about 5-6 minutes.

Dinner is served!

Because everything is better with an egg on top, right?

What’s your favorite way to prepare Brussles sprouts?  Do you like your eggs runny or fried hard?

Cheers!

Michelle

  1. I’m ashamed to say that despite many efforts, I cannot acquire a taste for brussels sprouts. I was a runny egg-ophobe for years until recently. Now I can tolerate them. Pretty header!
