This is a recipe that I came up with through trial and error and using various recipes. The bacon is KEY! If you don't have the bacon, don't cook these! Even my kids love these! I have to actually double the recipe when I make these. I hope you enjoy them as much as my family does! :)

Ingredients

How to Make The Best Brussel Sprouts EVER!

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 375*
  2. On medium high heat, cook your bacon until desired consistency. (I recommend cooked all the way through, but not completely crispy)
  3. while bacon is cooking, prep the sprouts. Clean and peel as needed, cut off bottom, and slice sprouts in half length wise. Also take this time to chop your onion.
  4. When bacon is done, remove bacon and place on a paper towel to remove excess fat.
  5. Place onion in the bacon fat already in the pan that has rendered off the bacon. If you need more fat, add a tablespoon or so. Saute the onions for a few minutes, and then add the sprouts. Cook until slightly golden in color, but not burnt. (about 5-10 minutes)
  6. Cut up bacon that you have already cooked, and add to mixture of sprouts and onion. Add salt an pepper to taste. Then place sprouts in oven. I cook all of this in a cast iron and then just place the pan in the oven and cook, but you can also place them on a cookie sheet to cook. Which ever you prefer. At this stage you can add Parmesan cheese if you like! (shredded NOT grated)
  7. Cook for about 15 minutes or so, to the desired consistency you prefer. We like them a little soft but still with a little cruch. Just past al dente.
