Maple roasted Brussels sprouts with applewood smoked bacon

I’ve never been a huge Turkey lover on Thanksgiving. I’m more of a sides girl. Give me ALL the sides 🙌🏻

I thought this would be a good addition  to any holiday, because I know there are others like me that can do without the turkey.

Brussels sprouts and bacon are a dynamite combo. Throw a little sweet maple syrup in and it’s just plain heavenly.

Heres what you need..

  • 4 strips of thick applewood smoked bacon. (I bought mine at Trader Joe’s, see below)
  • 3 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup of coconut oil/ghee. You can also use avocado oil.
  • I used one bag of whole Brussels sprouts from Trader Joe’s. I’d say it was almost 2 cups worth.
  • pinch of salt

PRE HEAT oven to 400 convection

  1. cut your Brussels sprouts in half and place them on a large cookie sheet.
  2. melt your coconut oil/ghee. Drizzle that and your syrup over the Brussels, Along with the salt.
  3. mix with your hands
  4. roast in your pre heated oven for about 25-30 minutes, turning the sprouts half way through.
  5. Cut the bacon into small squares, and crisp them up in a medium size sauté pan, on medium low heat. Once it’s cooked and golden, (see below) remove with a slotted spoon and place on a paper towel lined plate.
  6. once the Brussels are cooked, place in a medium size serving bowl, and sprinkle the bacon on top.

ENJOY!
