  1. 1

    Cook the Onion

    Halve and peel onion. Cut halves into 1/4" dice.

    Place a large oven-safe non-stick pan over medium-low heat.

    Add 1 Tbsp. olive oil, onion, and half the garlic salt (reserve remaining for Brussels sprouts) to hot pan. Stir occasionally until lightly browned, 15-20 minutes.

    If pan becomes dry, add water, 1 Tbsp. at a time and up to 3 Tbsp., as needed.

    While onion cooks, prepare Brussels sprouts.

  2. 2

    Prepare the Brussels Sprouts

    Trim stems off Brussels sprouts and halve vertically (quarter if larger than a ping-pong ball).

  3. 3

    Cook Brussels Sprouts and Finish Dish

    Increase heat to medium-high. Add Brussels sprouts and bacon to hot pan and stir occasionally until bright green, 7-9 minutes.

    Stir in with remaining garlic salt, garlic pepper, and 1/4 tsp. salt.

    Transfer pan to hot oven and roast until Brussels sprouts are fork-tender and lightly charred, 8-10 minutes.

    Serve family-style, garnishing with maple syrup and cheese. Bon appétit!
