Ingredients
  

  • 6 slices bacon, cut into 1/2 inch pieces (See Note)
  • 1 lb Brussels sprouts
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper

Instructions
 

  • To begin, preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  • Wash the Brussels sprouts.
  • Trim the bottom of the stems off then cut each Brussels sprout in half, splitting it top to bottom. Place the sprouts in a mixing bowl.
  • In a skillet, cook the bacon until it is golden and crispy, stirring occasionally.
  • Once the bacon is cooked, use a slotted spoon and scoop it out onto a a plate that is lined with paper towel. Do not discard the bacon drippings.
  • Drizzle 2 tablespoons of the bacon drippings all over the Brussels sprouts. Gently stir to coat.
  • Spread the Brussels sprouts out on a baking sheet.
  • Sprinkle them with the salt and pepper.
  • Bake for 35-45 minutes or until the Brussels sprouts are tender and slightly caramelized. Half way through the cooking time, use a spatula to turn the Brussels sprouts over and continue baking.
  • When the Brussels sprouts are cooked, sprinkle with the cooked bacon and serve.
  • Enjoy!

Notes

I use turkey or beef bacon now when making this recipe. If you are doing the same, you will need to add a cooking fat to replace the bacon drippings. Melted butter or duck fat are my preferred substitution. You will need about 2 tablespoons or so.
