Put together all of fall’s best flavors with this Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Apples & Bacon recipe! Salty, sweet, and savory flavors all come together on a sheet pan in your oven for you to enjoy as a side dish to your favorite dishes. We absolutely love this recipe, and we think you will too – it might even get your kids to eat their fruits and veggies!

Ingredients

  • 2 slice Bacon
  • 1/2 lb Brussels Sprouts (cut in half)
  • 1 Apple (cut into slices – your pick of flavor)
  • 2 tsp Olive Oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper

Directions

  1. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. Put the bacon slices on a large baking sheet and roast for 10 minutes. Remove from oven, cut the bacon into 1″ pieces, and set aside.

  2. Drain the bacon dripping into a mixing bowl. Add the brussels sprouts and olive oil to the bowl, and season generously with salt and pepper. Toss together, and make sure the sprouts are well coated with oil and seasoning. Place on the baking sheet and roast until they begin to brown, about 10-15 minutes.

    NOTE – if you like bacon (and who doesn’t?), instead of using 2 slices of bacon and olive oil, use 4 slices of bacon. Don’t slice 2 slices of bacon, just eat them as a snack, and use the extra drippings to coat the sprouts. You shouldn’t need olive oil with the extra drippings.

  3. Once the sprouts begin to brown, add the apple pieces, and the 2 slices worth of sliced bacon to the bacon sheet. Roast for another 10-15 minutes until the apple is browned, and the sprouts are soft. Serve warm with your favorite main dish and enjoy!
