Bacon-Almond Broccoli Medley

1-1/2 pounds fresh broccoli spears

1 medium sweet yellow pepper, cut into strips
1/4 cup butter, cubed
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup bacon bits

Place the broccoli in a 2-qt. microwave-safe dish; add water. Cover and microwave on high for 4-5 minutes or until tender.
Meanwhile, in a small skillet, saute yellow pepper in butter until tender. Stir in the brown sugar, vinegar and Worcestershire sauce. Cook for 1 minute or until sugar is dissolved.


Drain broccoli; place in a serving bowl. Add the pepper mixture, bacon and almonds; toss to coat. Serve with a slotted spoon.
