Recipes   Entrees    


  • 6 slices bacon, chopped
  • 1/3 cup Swerve Granular
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1 tsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp maple extract
  • 1 lb Brussels sprouts, washed, trimmed, and cut in half
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes (optional)


  1. Cook bacon in a large skillet over medium heat until crisp. Remove with a slotted spoon onto a paper towel-lined plate and reserve 2 tbsp of the grease in the pan.
  2. In a small saucepan, combine Swerve and water. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring frequently. Cook until mixture darkens to amber, about 5 to 7 minutes, watching carefully so that it doesn’t burn. Remove from heat and stir in vinegar and maple extract.
  3. Bring pan with reserved bacon grease back to medium heat. Add Brussels sprouts and cook until bright green, tender, and browned in spots, 4 to 5 minutes. Stir in bacon bits and maple mixture and toss to coat. Season to taste with salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes.

Makes 4 to 6 servings.
