Bacon Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Bacon Roasted Brussel Sprouts

There are two groups of people in life: those who like Brussels Sprouts, and those who hate them. Am I right? I had only tried them boiled, which definitely put me in the hater group…until this recipe came into my life.

Roasting the Brussels Sprouts gives them a perfect crunchy texture, and the bacon flavor melts into them while they’re baking. Need another reason to love Brussels Sprouts? They are a good source of fiber and folate, and are packed with vitamins A, C, and K!

And the kicker? My kids beg me to buy Brussels Sprouts every time we hit the store so we can have this dish with our dinner (they also chastise me for snitching bites between the oven and the table, but I swear it’s like eating candy and I just can’t help myself!).

    Omg I LOVE brussels. And I love bacon! This looks like the perfect combo. And I love it that you just lay the bacon on top — no frying it up and getting the kitchen all messy :-). Thanks for the great inspiration!
