Bacon and Brussels Sprout Skewers

From Paleo Happy Hour by Kelly Milton

Bacon and Brussels Sprouts Appetizer

Ingredients

  1. 1 pound bacon
  2. 2 pounds brussels sprouts
  3. 1 teaspoon ghee
  4. 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  5. 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  6. Small wooden skewers

Directions

  1. Cut each strip of bacon in half lengthwise. In a frying pan on medium heat, cook the bacon until it's partially cooked but still soft and pliable. (If you overcook the bacon, it will be difficult to weave it onto the skewer.) Remove the bacon from the pan, and set it aside. Remove most of the bacon grease from the pan, leaving just enough to coat it.
  2. Cut the brussels sprouts in half lengthwise. Add the sprouts, ghee, garlic powder, and sea salt to the frying pan. Sauté on medium heat until the sprouts are tender and browned.
  3. Preheat the oven to 375ºF.
  4. Assemble the skewers by threading 1 end of the bacon onto the end of a skewer. Add a brussels sprout slice, and weave the bacon around the sprout and back through the skewer, creating a wave pattern between the sprouts. Move the bacon and the sprout down the skewer, and repeat this process 2-3 more times for each skewer.
  5. Bake the skewers in a baking pan for 5-10 minutes, or until the bacon is fully cooked.
