Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Bacon and Apples.
When my friend, Janet shared a recipe yesterday on Facebook for Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Bacon and Apples by Mary from BarefeetintheKitchen, I knew I was making this for dinner last night.
I had just bought some fresh tiny, tender brussels sprouts, and I had bacon in the freezer and apples in the crisper.
And oh am I glad I tried this! It was absolutely amazing! A veggie side dish easy enough for an every night dinner as well as being delicious and “special” enough to serve to guests for a special occasion is perfection in my book!
Here is how I made it! Please let me know if you try and how you like it.
Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Bacon and Apples
- 6 slices bacon, cut into 1 inch pieces
- 1 lb fresh Brussels sprouts, trimmed and cut in half
- 1 apple, cut into bite-sized pieces
- Salt and Pepper
- 1 Tbsp. Red Wine Vinegar
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Place bacon in a single layer on stoneware baking pan or shallow baking sheet. Roast 10 minutes. Remove bacon from pan and set aside.
Place Brussels sprouts in pan and toss thoroughly in bacon drippings. Sprinkle generously with salt and pepper. Roast for 10 minutes.
Remove pan from oven, and add apple pieces and bacon to Brussels sprouts in pan. Toss to incorporate. Roast an additional 10 minutes or until Brussels are browned and apples become tender.
Remove from oven, and sprinkle red wine vinegar on top of all. Toss, and serve immediately.
