Oven Roasted Brussels Sprouts

You think you don't like Brussels sprouts?  Try roasting them in the oven with garlic, red onion, and bacon and then let's talk.  I'm telling you, friends, make these Brussels sprouts and you'll be thanking me!

Since I've been making my Brussels sprouts this way they have become a requested side dish for all of our family dinners.  Try adding cut up potatoes or sweet potatoes for a twist. Oh, so good!

Oven Roasted Brussels Sprouts
Five Key Ingredients

Print Recipe
  • 1 1/2 lb. fresh Brussels sprouts
  • 1/2 red onion, sliced thinly
  • 2-3 cloves garlic (use at least 2) finely chopped
  • 2 strips bacon, diced
  • 2 T olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste

Cut the bottoms off your Brussels sprouts and slice in half.  Place Brussels sprouts in a single layer in a baking pan.  Finely chop three cloves of garlic, and slice the onion thinly.  Dice the bacon (freezing the bacon first makes this easy).

Add the garlic, onion, and bacon to the pan with the Brussels sprouts.  Mix well to distribute the ingredients.  Drizzle with olive oil and season generously with salt and pepper.  Mix again to ensure the olive oil and seasonings are well distributed.

Roast in a preheated 400-degree oven for 30-40 minutes, until Brussels sprouts are well browned and the bacon is crisp.  Periodically I give the Brussels sprouts a stir while they are cooking.  You may want to as well.

Brown is good.  The flavor will be enhanced.
Brown Is Good.  Caramelization Is Key.

Here they are in all their roasted yumminess.  Brussels sprouts deliciousness...You're welcome.
