Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Bacon
December 06, 2022
Brussels sprouts are one of the most polarizing vegetables out there. Some people love ‘em, while others just see tiny, bitter cabbages. But even the hardest of sprout-haters can be turned into a fan with the right enticement–in this case, Brussels roasted to perfection and combined with bacon. After all, it’s hard to dislike any dish prepared with salty, crispy pork.
If you grew up on overcooked boiled sprouts the color of a military tent, no wonder you hated Brussels! Roasting is the far superior method for taste. It minimizes any natural bitterness while creating a deliciously crisp, gently charred exterior. Roasting Brussels sprouts also leaves much of their natural goodness intact.
It doesn’t take a lot of work to make roasted Brussels taste amazing. Just add bacon, a pinch of spices, and some tangy Primal Kitchen Balsamic Vinegar for a dish that’s unbe-leaf-ably tasty.
Brussels Sprouts and Bacon
Whether you love Brussels sprouts or you’re trying something new, these deliciously crispy oven-roasted Brussels sprouts with bacon make the perfect savory side dish.
1.5 lbs Brussels sprouts, washed and halved
2 Tablespoons Primal Kitchen Extra Virgin Olive Oil
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon black pepper
4 slices uncooked bacon, chopped
4 oz Primal Kitchen Balsamic Vinegar of Modena
Preheat the oven to 425°F.
Place halved Brussels sprouts on a baking sheet and lightly drizzle with olive oil. Use your hands to ensure Brussels sprouts are evenly covered. Season with salt and pepper.
Add chopped bacon to the pan and roast for 20-25 minutes, flipping halfway through, until Brussels sprouts are tender and lightly browned.
While the Brussels sprouts are roasting, cook the balsamic vinegar in a small pot on medium heat until reduced. The balsamic vinegar should be thick.
Once Brussels sprouts are cooked, remove the baking pan from the oven and drizzle the balsamic vinegar reduction over the Brussels sprouts. Stir to evenly distribute.
Pair with Primal Kitchen Ranch for decadent, dairy-free dipping.
