Bacon Roasted Brussels Sprouts
With the holiday season quickly approaching, it’s time to start planning your menu. Impress your guests with this delicious recipe for Bacon Roasted Brussels Sprouts. It’s the perfect side dish for any holiday feast!
First, preheat your oven to 400°F. While your oven is heating up, prepare your Brussels sprouts. Rinse them under cold water and cut off the stems. Cut the larger Brussels sprouts into halves or even quarters, and leave the smaller ones whole.
Next, cook your bacon in a pan until it’s crispy. Once cooked, remove the bacon from the pan and chop it into small pieces. Don’t discard the bacon grease, as you’ll be using it to roast the Brussels sprouts!
In a large mixing bowl, toss your prepared Brussels sprouts with the bacon grease, salt, and pepper. Then, spread them out evenly onto a baking sheet. Roast the Brussels sprouts for 20-25 minutes, or until they are golden brown and crispy.
While the Brussels sprouts are roasting, you can begin prepping your dressing. In a small mixing bowl, whisk together balsamic vinegar, olive oil, honey, Dijon mustard, and minced garlic. Once mixed, set aside.
Once the Brussels sprouts are done roasting, transfer them to a large mixing bowl. Pour the dressing over the Brussels sprouts and toss until they are fully coated. Then, add your chopped bacon into the mix and toss again.
To serve, place your Bacon Roasted Brussels Sprouts into a large serving dish, and sprinkle with fresh parsley. Your guests will love this delicious and savory side dish. Enjoy!
