Brussels sprouts with crispy bacon

  • 2 lb Brussels sprouts, quartered
  • 1 T canola oil
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • ½ pkg bacon*

Preheat oven to 400ºF.

Place Brussels sprouts and oil in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Toss to combine, place on parchment and bake for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Meanwhile, fry the bacon until almost crispy, drain, then crumble. When the sprouts are soft and starting to brown, toss with the bacon and put back in the oven for 3 minutes to meld flavours.

Variation: toss with toasted walnuts and crumbled goat cheese.

*Acme Meats, Irving’s Farm Fresh and Budapest Deli all stock delicious bacon.
