Oven Roasted Brussels Sprouts


It only took me 37 years to discover that I like Brussels Sprouts, all I needed to do was add bacon! To say that I detested Brussels Sprouts wouldn’t be an exaggeration. When I was growing up if Brussels Sprouts were on menu one thing was certain, I would remain sitting at the table long after everyone had eaten. Simply plotting how to discard  these “mini rotten cabbages” without getting caught.  But as of Thanksgiving, this is a new favorite side dish in my household! Well with the adults anyway…must be an age thing!

1 pound of Brussels Sprouts (approximate)
6 – 8 strips of bacon
1 teaspoon of garlic powder
1 tablespoon of dried Thyme
salt and pepper to taste

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Chop up your bacon and pan fry it until desired texture. Remove from heat.
3. Remove stem, clean and quarter your Brussels Sprouts.
4. Steam for 4 minutes. Drain.
5. In one large bowl combine all ingredients, bacon grease and all!
6. Place on baking sheet and cook for 15 minutes, before stirring and cook for an additional 15 minutes.
