6 slices bacon, cut into bite-size pieces
1/2 onion, diced
1 (12 ounce) package fresh brussels sprouts, trimmed and sliced
2 tablespoons white sugar, or to taste (optional)
salt and ground black pepper to taste
- Place bacon pieces in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain on paper towels, leaving grease in the skillet.
- Cook onion in the bacon grease in the skillet until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add brussels sprouts and toss to coat in the bacon grease. Cook and stir until browned and tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in sugar, salt, and black pepper; sprinkle in bacon pieces.
