  • 1/4 cup TABASCO Sweet & Spicy Pepper Sauce
  • 2 Tablespoons honey
  • 1 Tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

  • Cut the bacon into strips and cook in a large skillet over medium-high heat until crisped, turning often. Remove with a slotted spoon to a paper-towel lined dish and set aside.
  • Slice the Brussels sprouts into thirds. Chop the broccoli into small florets. Trim the ends off the asparagus and cut into 2-inch pieces.
