Clean ’em and cut them up in halves or thirds (depending on size), ensuring they’re consistent bite sizes.

Damn good Brussel Sprouts & Bacon…Let them roast until the bacon is crispy, about 30 minutes at 400 degrees.


  • 2# of Brussel Sprouts, cut in half or quartered (depending on the size)

  4. Place onto the baking sheet

  1. I’ve discovered that throwing the Brussels sprouts in a plastic bag, adding the oil (I use olive oil) and shaking the bag, distributes the oil much more evenly and I can get away with using less.
