SOUS VIDE 1 HOUR MAPLE BRUSSELS SPROUTS WITH BACON

Kerri Jablonski
While you don't sous vide Brussels sprouts for an hour you finish them in a pan on the stove for the last few minutes, which gives them a nice flavor and a lightly roasted look.

  • Place the bag into the Souspreme Multi Pot, put the lid on and let it cook for 50 mins.
  • While the sprouts cook, melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Keep a close eye on it, whisking it occasionally. Heat the butter gently until it starts to smell nutty. The color will from off-white to golden to light brown. Immediately remove from the heat and stir in the maple syrup. Set aside, in the saucepan, until the Brussels sprouts finish cooking.
  • Once your Brussels sprouts are done in the sous vide bath, carefully put them back in the same pan you cooked the bacon in, cook on medium high heat for 5 mins, until they are slightly blackened. Drizzle the maple butter all over, tossing to coat eve
