How to Cook a Turkey


1 lb Brussels sprouts, trimmed and washed

2 tablespoons olive oil

4 slices bacon, chopped

Salt and pepper, to taste

Slice the Brussels sprouts into fine shreds, set aside.  Heat the oil in a wok or large frying pan and add bacon.  Cook for 3-5 minutes, or until the bacon is beginning to turn golden.  Add the shredded sprouts to the wok or pan and stir-fry for 1-2 minutes, or until lightly cooked.  Season the sprouts with salt and pepper to taste, and stir in the caraway seeds.  Cook for 30 seconds more, then serve immediately.
