This recipe for Oven Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Bacon is dedicated to anyone out there who is convinced that they don’t like Brussels sprouts.  I’ve been right there with you – convinced myself that Brussels sprouts were one of those vegetables that I didn’t (and couldn’t possibly) like!

The first time I had Brussels sprouts, they were mushy (boiled or steamed – I can’t really remember) – and they didn’t smell very appetizing.  And for the life of me, I couldn’t understand why some people raved about them!

Then – I joined the ranks of Brussels sprouts lovers! The trick is to roast them in the oven at a high enough temperature that they caramelize and get golden and crispy on the outside, and tender (but not mushy) on the inside.  And – since pretty much everything is better with bacon – we cooked our oven roasted Brussels sprouts with bacon, giving the sprouts even more delicious flavor!

Oven Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Bacon - A Family Feast

Oven Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Bacon

  • Prep Time: 10 mins
  • Cook Time: 25 mins
  • Total Time: 35 minutes
  • Yield: 6 servings
  • Category: side dish
  • Method: roasted
  • Cuisine: American

Ingredients

  • pounds Brussels sprouts
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 6 bacon slices, cut into 1 inch pieces

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Clean and trim Brussels sprouts and cutting any very large heads in half through the core. (It’s fine if some of the outer leaves fall off – just bake those along with the rest of the sprouts. They get extra crispy and are delicious!)
  3. Place the Brussels sprouts in a large bowl and drizzle with olive oil, tossing to evenly coat.
  4. Pour the Brussels sprouts onto a large sheet pan (you want them to be in a single layer). Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Then evenly sprinkle the bacon pieces over the Brussels sprouts.
  5. Roast in the oven for 20 to 30 minutes, turning halfway through the cooking time, until golden and lightly caramelized.
  6. Serve immediately.

    I tried making these for a pre-thanksgiving dinner celebration I had with friends. Now I love brussels, usually steamed & nicely seasoned. Soo I figured these would be hella dank.
    . but I did not really like them. I don’t know if I did anything wrong, but they took a lot longer to cook through than what the recipe said, at least for my taste. I like them somewhat soft, but these were kind of dry, tasting a bit bitter, & just not how I like them. They were really disappointing. Especially since it’s a common food that people will stick their nose up to, I was really hoping to change some perspectives. But I didnt. & in retrospect, I kind of wish I didnt make them.

      Sorry to hear that Kelly! Is it possible that the Brussels sprouts you cooked were not very fresh? We’ve made some ourselves in the past that tasted a little bitter and the fresher the better it seems! Thanks for writing to us and I’m sorry you didn’t enjoy the recipe!

    Can this recipe be made a day ahead and warmed up the next day. or will you lose their crispiness?

    • Martha wrote:

      Hi Donna – if you reheat in the oven (versus microwaving) you should be OK!

    My husband used to not like brussels sprouts and he actually just made something very similar to this last night. While bacon does go with everything there is just something wonderful about bacon and brussels sprouts – amazing! I drizzle a little balsamic glaze on mine, too.

    • Martha wrote:

      Oh yes Becki! A balsamic glaze is great with Brussels sprouts! (I’m glad your husband is now a fan!) Thanks for stopping by today!

    Is it ok if i use frozen brussel sprouts?

    • Martha wrote:

      Hi Marina – Yes and no!! Yes, of course, you can cook the frozen Brussels sprouts with the bacon! But – I haven’t had the same luck cooking the frozen and getting the same texture as when we used fresh sprouts. If you can, we’d recommend making this with fresh sprouts. Hope that helps!

    Mmmnmm I love bacon!! I don’t find it that horrible if it’s not fried, so baked bacon is the way forward. With brussel sprouts? heavenly!
