1 lb Bacon, cut into 1 in pieces 1 1/2 lbs Brussels sprouts, cut in half 1/4 cup Olive oil 1/4 cup Maple syrup 1/2 tsp Salt 1/2 tsp Pepper
In a large skillet add bacon and turn heat to medium low. Cook until bacon is golden and begins to crisp. Using a slotted spoon remove the bacon from pan.
Remove all but 1 tbsp of bacon fat from pan and add in olive oil. Turn heat up to medium high. Add Brussels sprouts cut side down to the pan and allow to cook without disturbing for 4-5 minutes or until the sprouts begin to char.
