Yes, brussel sprouts can taste amazing. You know my secret? Bacon. Are you surprised? I wasn't. Bacon makes anything taste better, and it transformed one of my least favorite vegetables into something I gobbled up.
I took Rookie Cookie's Roasted Brussel Sprout recipe (which by the way, was pretty darn good without the bacon!) and added 2 slices of chopped bacon. The result was dreamy. Yes, brussel sprouts can be dreamy.
Roasted Brussel Sprouts with Bacon
1 pound of brussel sprouts
1 tablespoon of olive oil
2 slices of bacon, chopped
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Rinse and pat dry the brussel sprouts. Cut the large ones in half and trim off the ends of the sprout. Place on a baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil, bacon, salt and pepper:
Bake for 20-25 minutes or until they are browned and the bacon is crispy.
Yum. Really! I mean it-yum.
