Courtesy of Clinton Kelly and the National Mango Board
Serves 4 to 6 as a side dish
6 slices bacon, chopped
1 pound Brussels sprouts, halved
2 large mangos (about 2 pounds), peeled, pitted and diced
1 tablespoon brown sugar
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon pepper
Place chopped bacon in large non-stick skillet on medium heat. Cook until crisp and fat renders, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove bacon with slotted spoon and transfer to paper-towel lined plate; set aside.
Remove all but 1 tablespoon bacon fat from skillet and increase heat to medium-high. Add Brussels sprouts, mango, brown sugar, salt and pepper. Cook until Brussels sprouts and mango are beginning to brown and become tender; about 6 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Remove from heat and toss with reserved bacon.
