Anyone who isn't a fan of Brussels sprouts simply hasn't tried them roasted with bacon! Dare we say this side dish is better than french fries?


  • 1 1/2 pounds Brussels sprouts
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • black pepper
  • 3 strips bacon


  1. Preheat the oven to 375° F.
  2. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Trim the ends from the Brussels sprouts, cut in half, and place in a large mixing bowl. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt, garlic powder, and black pepper, to taste.
  4. Dice the bacon into 1/4” pieces and place in a large skillet.
  5. Set the skillet over medium high heat. Fry the bacon, stirring frequently with a rubber spatula, just until it begins to render some fat, about 2-3 minute. The bacon should still be very undercooked. Transfer the bacon and fat to the bowl of Brussels sprouts.
  6. Toss the Brussels sprouts and bacon until the oil is evenly distributed. Transfer to the parchment lined baking sheet.
  7. Transfer the baking sheet to the middle rack of the preheated oven.
  8. Roast the Brussels sprouts and bacon for 15 minutes. Open the oven and stir with a rubber spatula. Continue roasting for 10-15 minutes longer, until the Brussels sprouts are tender and slightly charred, and the bacon is browned and crisp.
  9. Remove the baking sheet from the oven, and serve immediately.
