Sauteed Brussel Sprouts

An excellent choice for a side dish, and so easy to prepare.  I first saw this recipe on Food Network, but decided to change a few ingredients to see if it would be as tasty as the full fat version.  It is!!

1-2 pounds fresh brussel sprouts cleaned and cut in half.
1 TBSP Olive oil
1 TBSP Butter (OK  you have to have a little fun)
3 strips Turkey Bacon cut into small pieces
1 medium onion, chopped
1/2 tsp salt

Brown the turkey bacon bits, drain and set aside in a non-stick skillet Put olive oil and butter in skillet and saute the onion until light brown and almost clear.  Put sprouts in the skillet, add salt and pepper to taste.   Saute with the onion until golden brown.  The sprouts will be firm and semi-crisp.  Remove from skillet and garnish with bacon bits.
