Happy Saturday, Friends! Can you believe that Thanksgiving is just a few days away?? I’m having a really hard time wrapping my head around that!!
These bacon brussel sprouts are the perfect side dish to serve on turkey day or any other day. I’ve never met a brussel sprout that I didn’t like (unless it was just steamed, which in that case…I don’t like, haha). There is a restaurant here in Oakland called “Home Room” that serves some of my favorite brussels and I’ve tried to figure out how to replicate the recipe for some time now. So without further adieu…
Bacon Brussel Sprouts Recipe
- 1 stalk brussels
- 1 yellow or white onion
- Bacon-I use the entire pack of bacon from Trader Joes that is 12oz, plus a little extra sometimes
- 1/4 cup Apple Cider Vinegar, plus 6 Tbs
- Olive Oil–enough to evenly coat the brussels
- Salt –enough to evenly coat the brussels
- Pepper–enough to evenly coat the brussels
- Chop bacon, brussels, and onion. I like to cut my brussels up small because I feel that they roast better the smaller they are.
- Place onion and brussels in bowl and toss evenly with salt, pepper, and olive oil. Don’t be afraid of the salt…they taste better with a little extra.
- Add in bacon and toss entire mixture with apple cider vinegar.
- Evenly place on baking sheet. I line mine with aluminum foil for easy cleanup. If you went light on the salt and pepper in the beginning step you could put a nice little layer of both here.
- Roast at 400 degrees, for 50-60 minutes…there is a chance they might need to go longer than 60 minutes. They should look like the picture below when they are done.
- While the brussels are roasting, stir them on the pan every 15 minutes so that they don’t get stuck and burn. I mean really get in there and stir them around!! After you are done stirring, sprinkle 2 Tbs apple cider over all the brussels and put back in the oven
I hope you guys love these as much as I do! In fact, I’ll be making them tonight for friendsgiving so if I have enough time I’ll film a little InstaStories showing you how to make them!
If you live in California, stay safe with all this smoke. It’s bad out there and my heart aches for all the people affected by these tragic fires! If you’re looking for ways to help, you can find some different options here.
