Ingredients

  • 1 LB Brussels Sprouts, trimmed and sliced in half
  • 1 TSP Kosher Salt
  • 1/2 Shallot, diced fine (approximately ¼ cup)
  • 2 Strips Cooked Bacon, diced fine
  • 1 TSP Granulated Garlic Powder
  • 3 TBSP Olive Oil
  • 1 TBSP Grated Parmesan (optional, but delicious)

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil.
  • In a bowl, combine all the ingredients EXCEPT the parmesan (if you are using it). Mix well. You want the oil to really coat the cut side of the sprout.
  • Lay the brussels sprouts cut-side-down on the baking sheet. Toss the other ingredients onto the sheet as well. If there is some bacon or shallot under some sprouts, don’t worry about it.
  • Roast in the oven for 25 minutes or until soft on the top and caramelized on the cut side.
  • Serve immediately and enjoy!

Notes

Roasting times may vary based on the size of your brussels sprouts. Expect shorter cook time for smaller sprouts and longer for larger. I’ve seen HUGE sprouts out there!
 
Placing the sprout cut-side-down will prevent it from drying out and provide a wonderful caramelization. It is worth the extra 30 seconds it takes to turn them all over.
 
If you have a lot of green leaves laying around before you start cooking (not the yellow or damaged ones), go ahead and add them into the mixture with the oil. They will be crispy and delicious once they are roasted.
