    Heat oven to 400°F. Place pie crust in 9-inch glass pie plate as directed on box for One-Crust Filled Pie. DO NOT PRICK CRUST. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or just until edge begins to brown (if crust puffs up in center, gently push down with back of wooden spoon).

    Meanwhile, heat 10-inch skillet over medium heat. Add bacon; cook 7 to 9 minutes, stirring occasionally, until bacon is crisp. Using slotted spoon, transfer bacon to paper towel-lined plate. Add sprouts to same pan with bacon drippings with 1/4 teaspoon of the salt; cook 5 to 6 minutes, stirring occasionally, until tender. Transfer with slotted spoon to plate with bacon. Discard remaining bacon drippings.
