2.5lbs, brussels sprouts (trimmed)
4oz organic turkey bacon
3 tbsp olive oil
1 cup breadcrumbs
1 small chile, finely chopped
1 tbsp thyme leaves
1 tsp lemon zest
2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
Remove outer leaves from brussels sprouts; set aside. Halve sprouts; set aside.
Pulse turkey bacon in a food processor until finely ground.
Heat 1 tbsp oil in a large skillet over medium-low.
Cook bacon, stirring often, until browned around edges and fat is rendered, about 4 minutes.
Add breadcrumbs and cook, stirring often, until brown and crisp, about 5 minutes.
Transfer breadcrumb mixture to paper towels and let cool slightly.
Toss in a medium bowl with chile, thyme, and lemon zest; set aside.
Increase heat to medium-high and heat 2 tbsp. oil in same skillet.
Add reserved halved brussels sprouts; season with salt.
Cook, tossing occasionally, until deeply browned all over, 5–8 minutes.
Reduce heat to low, cover skillet, and cook until tender, about 5 minutes.
Uncover skillet, add reserved leaves and 1 tbsp. lemon juice, and toss to combine.
Cover skillet and cook, tossing occasionally, until leaves are bright green and just wilted, 4–5 minutes.
Uncover; add remaining 1 tbsp. lemon juice and season with salt.
Transfer brussels sprouts to a platter, drizzle with more oil, and top with reserved breadcrumb mixture (reheat breadcrumb mixture if needed in a small skillet or in microwave).
