Sauteed Brussel Sprouts with Bacon & Onion

Sauteed Brussel Sprouts with Bacon & Onion

2 1/2 pounds brussel sprouts, trimmed
4 slices bacon, cut into 1inc pieces
1 tblsp olive oil
1 large onion, diced
4 spriggs of thyme (substitute 3tsp of dried thyme)
1 tsp salt
black pepper, to taste
2 tsp lemon juice (optional)

Cut brussel sprouts into quarters, unless very small, then cut in half.  Cook sprouts in boiling water until almost tender, 3-5 minutes.  Drain.

Meanwhile, in a large skillet cook bacon pieces over medium heat until brown, not crisp.  Remove & let drain on a paper towel lined plate.  Remove bacon grease from pan EXCEPT about 1 tblsp will remain.  Add olive oil & onion and saute until slightly tender.  Stir in thyme, salt & pepper.  Increase heat to medium-high and add Brussel sprouts, lightly tossing and cook until tender & warmed through, about 3 minutes.  If you used the sprig of thyme, remove sprig.  Otherwise, add bacon and lemon juice (if using), toss lightly and serve.
