Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Bacon
Happy New Year! Here’s wishing everyone a smooth-sailing and delicious 2015. These roasted Brussels sprouts with bacon is a simple, 5 or less ingredient recipe for getting back into the groove of cooking again. For me, Brussels sprouts were love at first bite, and I like everything about them, including the inherent slight bitterness. But I do know that the sprouts are an acquired taste for many people, and the bacon definitely helps to complement the taste of the sprouts.
Some recipes will ask for the bacon to be crisped up in a hot pan first, and the sprouts are either sauteed directly in the hot pan with the oil rendered from the bacon, or transferred to the oven afterwards.
At the Noob Cook kitchen, the lazy style of cooking always prevails, so this is a dump-everything-into-oven-to-cook kind of recipe. The bacon does crisp up and and sprouts do brown nicely, and I don’t have to worry about oil splatters or messy clean ups.
