Roasted brussels sprouts with bacon are as good as it gets. The brussels are roasted until deliciously dark in spots and the bacon is perfectly crisp. Bonus: they can be assembled ahead of time for a stress-free Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner!

  • 2 lbs brussels sprouts, trimmed and cut in half if large
  • 2 teaspoons oil
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 garlic cloves, finely minced
  • 1/2 pound of bacon, cut into 1/2 inch strips


  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. 
  2. Mix the brussels sprouts with the oil, pepper, and garlic then place them on a rimmed baking sheet in a single layer. Cover them with the bacon pieces. 
  3. Roast for 35-40 minutes, mixing them halfway through. They are best when the brussels are very brown and the bacon is crispy.
