Roasted Brussels Sprouts Recipe

Roasted Brussel Sprouts with bacon

Brussels sprouts … the dreaded vegetable of childhood! Cooked the right way, these can become a (kid-approved) favorite! They are also a great addition to a Thanksgiving or holiday menu or a perfect side for chicken or fish. And it all comes together in half an hour with only one baking sheet needed.

My kids call Brussels sprouts mini cabbages, and love the addition of bacon. They actually like drizzling them with a little raw honey for a sweet and salty mix! If you haven’t tried Brussels sprouts since childhood, I’d encourage trying this healthy and delicious version!

Delicious Brussels Sprouts!

This recipe was inspired by a restaurant I once visited. I didn’t think I liked Brussels sprouts, but I tried them because everything was served family style. I was absolutely blown away by how good they were! After many attempts, this recipe is pretty close.

Usually when I make these, I let the kids help by chopping the Brussels sprouts in halves or quarters. I keep one of these crinkle cutters on hand for each child so they can help without cutting their fingers. I also let them chop carrots and celery for snacks or parsnips, zucchini, etc. for soups.

These roasted Brussels sprouts also make a great side dish to bring to events, and leftovers are good scrambled in eggs the next day.

Don’t think you are a Brussels sprouts person? You’ve probably just never had them prepared well. Try these … they might change your mind!
