Roasted Brussels (and Bacon)


I love roasted Brussels sprouts! You may think Brussels are gross, but, I guarantee if you make them how I make them you will love them! It’s so easy and these veggies are SO good for you I recommend you eat them multiple times per week in large quantities.


  • Brussels sprouts, ends cut off and sliced in half
  • 100% pure olive oil
  • balsamic vinegar
  • sea salt
  • pepper
  • red pepper flakes (optional)
  • 2-3 slices bacon, cut into small pieces (nitrate free/no added nitrates – purchase from local farm or Whole Foods)


Pre-heat oven to 415. Place your brussels on a baking sheet and toss in olive oil, balsamic vinegar, sea salt, pepper and red pepper flakes. Add your sliced bacon throughout the pan. Roast for 15-20 minutes.



*Note: These are equally delicious without the bacon. The bacon is added as a treat on occasion. I love to roast a whole pan of just Brussels and it’s divine as a side dish to any meal.
