You can get a head start on this recipe by trimming the Brussels sprouts a couple of days in advance, and refrigerating them in an unsealed plastic bag.


  • 20 ounces Brussels sprouts, stems trimmed and thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons bacon drippings (6 ounces bacon, cooked)
  • 4 carrots, cut into 1/4-inch pieces
  • 1/2 cup golden raisins
  • 1 1/2 cups low-sodium canned chicken broth
  • Coarse salt and fresh ground pepper


  • 1 In a skillet fry bacon and reserve 2 tablespoons bacon drippings.
  • 2 Remove bacon from skillet. Add Brussels sprouts and carrots to the bacon drippings and sauté until sprouts start to turn golden brown, about 3 minutes.
  • 3 Add raisins and chicken broth; continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until sprouts are tender when pierced, about 12 minutes.
  • 4 Remove from heat, season with salt and pepper. Serve hot.
