My grandson loves Brussel sprouts so for Christmas this year instead of simply steaming them, I decided to try something different. Quite an easy dish to make, these roasted sprouts get quite crunchy which only adds to the delicious combination of sprouts and bacon! I’m sorry I didn’t get a photo before we ate them all.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a medium size bowl combine:
1-1 1/2 pounds Brussel sprouts, trimmed and halved
2 small to medium red onions, peeled and cut into good sized pieces
1 teaspoons garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 tablespoons olive oil
Toss to coat all the sprouts. TIP: I generally toss the sprouts before adding the olive oil. Spread mixture out onto large baking sheet in a single layer. TIP: I like to make sure all the sprouts are cut side down so they get extra crispy. Cut into thin strips:
1/2 pound bacon
Sprinkle the bacon strips over the Brussel sprouts and bake for 30-35 minutes until bacon is cooked and the sprouts are nicely browned. The onions will also be nicely caramelized. Serves 4-6. Serve warm.
