Oven Roasted Brussel Sprouts with Bacon and Onion

I know some of you think you hate Brussel Sprouts…I’m telling you it’s all in your mind (and perhaps a traumatic grey sludge experience from from your childhood) and your mouth is what is going to change that opinion. Make this recipe (or my other recipe for Oven Roasted Brussel Sprouts) for this vegetable with a dodgy past and you’ll be a convert like me.

Bacon does tend to make everything taste good, especially when oven roasted with onion and brussel sprouts. 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.

For a slightly more simple but equally delicious oven roasted recipe for Brussel Sprouts try Oven Roasted Brussel Sprouts. In this recipe I add some Balsamic Vinegar towards the end of baking, that lends slightly caramelised flavours to the sprouts.

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