We make these from time to time — got the idea from our favorite restaurant in Savannah, Local Eleven Ten.

Keep the heat high, but not so high that the grease begins to smoke, and cook the sprouts until they are lightly browned. Add just a little brown sugar and maybe a dash of balsamic vinegar while cooking.  Season with salt and pepper to taste.  Just before serving, crumble up some of the cooked bacon and mix with the sprouts.  Yum!
