My family loves Brussels sprouts and I do too. I make them for supper and it is so easy to make it. They are so delicious and tasty.

Lisa's right, these roasted Brussels sprouts are delicious and tasty. Plus, it's super easy to prepare. The Brussels are tender and have a delicious savory flavor (thanks to butter, garlic, and diced onion). Our favorite part, though, are the crispy bits of smoky bacon in every bite. This makes a wonderful side dish.

How To Make brussels sprouts with onion and bacon

  • Fried bacon on a paper towel.
    In a heavy-bottomed pot over medium heat, fry the bacon until crisp. Remove the bacon and drain on paper towels.
  • Sauteeing onion and garlic in bacon grease.
    Saute the onion and garlic in the bacon grease over low heat until soft, about 3 minutes.
  • Brussels sprouts added to the skillet.
    Add the Brussels sprouts and stir them around so that they are coated with the bacon grease. Add the broth and cook, covered, over low heat until the sprouts are easily pierced with a fork, about 12-15 minutes.
  • Butter and bacon added to the skillet.
    Stir in the butter and bacon just before serving.
