Cut bacon slices into small pieces
Fry bacon until crisp and set aside saving bacon grease for Brussels sprouts
Trim loose leaves and stem from Brussels sprouts
Cut Brussels sprouts into halves or quarters depending on size
Steam Brussels sprouts for about 12 minutes until al dente
Fry the Brussels sprouts briefly in the bacon grease
Season the Brussels sprouts with crushed garlic, salt, and pepper
