Oven Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Bacon
These Easy Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Bacon are the perfect side that packs a nutritional punch! The caramelized sweetness pairs perfectly with the crunchy savory addition of bacon!
- 2 pounds brussels sprouts (washed well)
- 6 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil (or avocado oil)
- 1/2 tsp salt (or to taste)
- 1/4 tsp pepper (or to taste)
- 10 slices bacon (cut into ½ inch pieces - see Recipe Notes for sourcing)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray baking sheet with cooking spray and set aside.
Slice brussels sprouts in half and place in a large bowl. No need to remove ends.
Combine oil, salt, and pepper in a small bowl and stir to combine.
Drizzle combined oil and spices over the cut brussels sprouts, tossing well to coat evenly.
Lay seasoned brussels sprouts face down on a large baking sheet (so they can be in a single layer) spreading them out evenly, placing any fallen sprouts leaves in between the sprouts.
Place bacon pieces between the cut brussels sprouts, making certain they touch the baking sheet directly.
Bake for 10 minutes in preheated oven, then flip the brussels sprouts and bacon over. Bake an additional 10 minutes or until the brussels sprouts are golden, fork tender, and caramelized, and the bacon is crisp.
