Have you ever seen anything more wonderful!
But still it seems that brussels sprouts are unliked by most people.
Not if you cook them like this (sorry my vegan & vegetarian friends!):
Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Bacon
1 lb Brussels Sprouts washed and halved (or quartered if really large)
5-8 slices of raw bacon, chopped
Preheat over to 425 degrees
Cook bacon in a saute pan over medium heat for 4-5 minutes (take off heat before bacon is actually done because it will cook more in the oven). Toss in the brussels sprouts and stir to coat with bacon fat (that’s right, brussels sprouts rolled in bacon grease)
Pour brussels sprouts (and bacon bits) onto a roasting pan or baking sheet with lip and sprinkle with fresh oregano and salt.
Roast in the oven for about 25 minutes, stirring every now and then until edges are brown and crispy.
Remove from oven and squeeze a little lemon juice over the top (really makes a difference).
Pepper to taste.
**I remember picking up this recipe about 10 years ago at a Green Market in NYC. I wish I could credit it’s source, but the actual recipe is long gone since it’s a pretty easy recipe to remember.
