COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Update Learn More

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

CentraCare care givers have been working around the clock for more than 20 months to care for you, your families and friends during COVID. We are committed to caring for every Minnesotan who needs us, and nothing will prevent us from doing so – even during these never-seen-before times.

The challenge of providing this level of care is that our hospital beds are often full. ERs in all of our hospitals are packed. And our clinical teams are exhausted. Early in the pandemic, our community stepped up in amazing ways to help us. We ask that you again join us in fighting this pandemic together.

How can you help?

  • Please get your COVID vaccines and booster shots. They are proven safe and effective in reducing COVID illness, keeping people out of the hospital, and preventing death.
  • If your situation is not an emergency, please use other care options, including:
  • If this is a medical emergency, call 9-1-1, or visit the ER.

Together, we can do this. Thank you for your support.

Ken Holmen, MD
President and CEO

Sautéed Brussels Sprouts with Bacon and Golden Raisins

Published in Recipes, Snacks Author: CentraCare

Recipe from Real Simple

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup golden raisins
  • 2 pounds small Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Kosher salt and black pepper
  • 6 slices bacon
  • 1 small red onion, cut into thin half-moons

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 425°F. Warm the vinegar in a small saucepan over medium heat. Remove from heat, add the raisins, and let sit for 15 minutes; drain.
  2. On a large rimmed baking sheet, toss the Brussels sprouts, oil, and 1 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Roast, stirring once, until tender and slightly golden, 25 to 30 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, cook the bacon in a large skillet over medium-high heat until crisp, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate; crumble. Discard all but 2 tablespoons of the drippings.
  4. Return the skillet to medium heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, 5 to 6 minutes. Add the Brussels sprouts, raisins, and bacon and toss to combine.
