Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Bacon Recipe

How many of you enjoy eating Brussels Sprouts? We love them and make them a variety of different ways. One of the best things about them is that they’re versatile and can be served with any of your main dish meats or fish. Today, I’m sharing with you one of my husband’s favorite Brussels Sprouts Recipes and it’s super-easy to make!

Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Bacon Recipe

Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Bacon Recipe

1 1/2 lbs. fresh Brussels Sprouts
2 Tbsp. Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
1/2 tsp. Salt
1/4 to 1/2 tsp. Ground Black Pepper
6 Slices Bacon, Cut into Small Pieces

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Wash and clean the brussels sprouts. Use a knife to slice each one into half. If any of the leaves fall off, you can toss them into the baking dish too.

In a large mix bowl, combine together the prepared brussels sprouts with the extra-virgin olive oil, salt and ground black pepper. I just use a spoon to gently toss all of them together.

Using a knife, cut the raw bacon into small pieces. I like to use 1″ to 2″ long pieces.

Pour the brussels sprouts into the baking dish. Use a spoon to even everything out. Arrange the bacon pieces on top.

Place baking dish into a 375 degree preheated oven. Bake for 15 minutes, stir everything up and then bake for an additional 10-15 minutes or until done. Remove from the oven and let sit in the baking dish for an additional 3-5 minutes before serving.

Variations: I will sometimes sprinkle shredded cheese on top during the last 1-2 minutes of the baking time. My daughter loves melted cheese on them, while my husband and I prefer them without. In addition, I will sometimes use my garlic flavored olive oil when we’re in the mood for a different twist. YUM!

    I like the idea of the garlic flavored olive oil. This is a good recipe for my entire family to enjoy.

  2. This recipe sounds amazing! I usually just steam my brussel sprouts and add a little butter. This recipe sounds so much better!

    I have yet to try roasting brussel sprouts! I generally steam mine and just toss in a bit of butter, This looks and sounds really good though, I might have to try it for a change of pace. I like the idea of roasting them .

  4. This looks great. I adore brussels sprouts and you are perfectly right that something about them cries out for some pork or sausage, or my favorite – bacon!

  5. I so so so love brussel sprouts and eat them several times a month. I am so trying this recipe and soon. I would also love to try it with that butter sauce that you mentioned. Thank you for sharing this one and have a nice weekend.

    I am trying to eat more vegetables. I like brussel sprouts but my husband does not. I think this will convert him. Thank you for the recipe.

    • We love Brussel Sprouts but they have to be prepared in a very tasty way for us to eat them. We also like them cooked in a homemade butter sauce too. The recipe that I posted really pumps up the flavor and I think your hubby might be a convert after trying them prepared this way.

  7. I love my garlic oil and used some tonight on some sweet potatoes. This recipe looks like what a friend brought to our New Year’s Eve dinner. Very yummy.
