Oven Roasted Brussel Sprouts With Bacon

Did you guys know that it’s Brussel Sprout season? For whatever reason, I refused to eat these as a kid. Maybe it was their reputation? Whichever the case, when Brussel Sprouts are done right – they are absolutely delicious!

Here’s a simple and delicious recipe that you can have as a main or side!


  • Brussel Sprouts
  • Bacon or Pancetta
  • Apples (I love Honeycrisp Apples)
  • Balsamic Glaze
  • Dried Cranberries, Cherries or Pomegranate Seeds


  • Preheat oven to 375
  • Season with Olive Oil, Salt & Pepper and then roast the Brussel Spouts for 15 minutes.
  • After 15 minutes, shake them up and return them to a 350 degree oven for an additional 10 minutes
  • In the mean time, cook your bacon or pancetta how you normally would. I usually roast mine for about 20 minutes at 400
  • If you cut apples into wedges, you can toss them in the pan for the last 5-7 minutes, but if you slice them thin like I did on a mandolin – you can just toss them together once the Brussels tree done.
  • Once you plate the Brussels and Apples, you can top with bacon and the dried cranberries!
  • Drizzle balsamic glaze on top! If you don’t have balsamic glaze – I do think it’s worth the price! I use it on desserts, steak salads, caprese salads among other things. Sure, you can make your own, but I barely have time to shower some days!
  • Optional – adding shaved parmesan cheese or pine nuts!

You can also do a variation with sliced brussel sprouts that come pre-shaved in a bag. When I find these I just sauté them up in a Wok and combine it all together in the pan!

Hope you guys enjoy!
