Oven Roasted Brussel Sprouts with Bacon and Onion

Oven Roasted Brussel Sprouts with Bacon and Onion

So you think you hate brussel Sprouts…and perhaps you’ve had a traumatic experience with them like I did when I was younger. Well this recipe might help you change your mind. It’s actually your taste buds that are going to change that opinion. Make this amazing recipe for this vegetable with a shady past, and I can guarantee that you will become a convert just I did.

Now there is a saying out there that if you add bacon to a recipe, you can make anything taste great. So add some bacon to oven roasted onion and brussel sprouts and give it a try. If you had told me when I was younger that I would eat a bowl of brussel sprouts for lunch on their own, by choice, I would never have believed you. Make this recipe and you will understand the change of attitude. Brussel sprouts are now one of my favorite recipes. Of course, it isn’t the bacon that makes these palatable, but just a different way of cooking them, versus boiling them in a pot of water until they are grey. Now don’t be afraid of your brussel sprouts getting a little crispy around the edges, as that is part of the appeal of this recipe.

In this recipe I simply add some Balsamic Vinegar towards the end of baking an it lends slightly caramelised flavours to the sprouts. Again, allow these to crispen up a little as they taste delicious eaten like that.

Make it! Taste it…and I guarantee you are going to add Brussel Sprouts to your diet again!
