Bacon Brussels Sprouts with Apples & Pomegranates

4 cups brussels sprouts, quartered

1 honeycrisp apple, chopped

1 teaspoon dried thyme

Cook bacon until crispy in a saute pan. Remove bacon and set aside in a small dish. Keep any bacon grease in the pan. Over medium heat, add brussels sprouts to pan and saute for 6 minutes, stirring occasionally. When they are tender or starting to get brown, add the chopped apples, thyme and pomegranate seeds. Mix to combine. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Taste and add more if desired.

Serve warm. Enjoy!
