Roasted Brussels Sprouts Recipe with Bacon
Ingredients
  • 5 strips bacon , cut into small pieces (half a package)
  • 2 tablespoons bacon grease
  • 1 pound Brussels sprouts , trimmed, cut in half
  • 1 medium onion , finely chopped
  • ½ teaspoon Salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Cut the bacon into small bite-sized pieces and cook in a frying pan over medium heat. Cook until just crispy. The bacon will continue cooking in the oven.
  3. Reserve 2 tablespoons of the grease from the bacon. Drain the remaining grease from the bacon pieces and allow to drain on a paper towel.
  4. Combine the halved Brussels sprouts and finely chopped onion in an oven proof baking dish. Drizzle the bacon grease overtop and toss to evenly coat. Season with the salt and pepper. The amounts can be adjusted to your preference.
  5. Sprinkle the cooked bacon over top of the Brussels sprouts and cover the dish with foil.
  6. Roast the Brussels sprouts in your 400 F oven for about 40 minutes or until they are just tender. Cooking temperatures will vary depending on the size of your Brussels Sprouts. Start checking for doneness after 30 minutes.
