Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Bacon – Caramelized, roasted brussels sprouts with juicy bacon are the perfect pair for a fantastic side dish!

Roasted Brussel Sprouts with Bacon | | #vegetables #recipe #christmas #sidedish

These are THE BEST roasted brussels sprouts ever, prepared with just 5 ingredients including crispy, juicy bacon. Easy and delicious to make, it is the perfect side dish for any night of the week, but also fancy enough for a Holiday dinner.

I can only imagine the chaos every Christmas Dinner hostess/host is faced with on this beautiful Sunday. There’s two days left. Two! Some of you are probably hosting a Christmas Eve Party, as well, and you have just a day. One day.

On top of all that, you have to deal with those questions in your head that won’t leave you alone; do I have enough, do I need more ham, can I get away with two desserts, the MIL better not try to get away with store-bought pie… So many thoughts, so little time.

Go ahead, take a sip of that spiked apple cider next to you…

I wanted to help you out with a side dish of Roasted Brussels Sprouts. An extra side dish is one of those things that you always need plenty of, but have a hard time figuring out how to make it different.

I was first introduced to brussels sprouts at my aunt’s Christmas Dinner few years back. They were steamed and seasoned with salt and pepper. I didn’t fall in love with them right away. Sadly, it took me a good ten or twenty tries before I finally said, oh yeah, gimme more.

The secret to finally falling in love? Bacon. And the oven.


Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl; brussels sprouts, bacon, salt, pepper and olive oil, and toss to coat evenly.

Transfer it all on a baking sheet and pop it in the oven for 35 ish minutes.

That’s it!

Lesson(s) learned: Roasted veggies rock. Bacon makes everything better, and Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Bacon are my absolute favorite side dish.

    Sounds wonderful, but seems odd that the picture is misleading in that it leads you to believe that the dish is prepared on top of the stove in a skillet 🙂

    1. Hi Susan!
      No, there’s no need to cook the bacon. In fact, because of the bacon’s juices released during the roasting process, this dish tastes that much better. Everything is better with bacon! 😉
      Thank you SO much for stopping by!

    I was never a fan of brussel sprouts but did convert after finding a recipe which included a touch of honey with it. Soooo delicious! 🙂
    Your picture makes them look so good. Love it!

    1. Thank you, Dorothy!! It really is a delicious side dish…I make it quite often and the only complaint is that I didn’t make enough. My husband’s advice is to double the recipe if you can. 😀
      Have a very Merry Christmas!!

  3. Now, this is THE WAY to make Brussels Sprouts! We love them roasted…always better. And, now we will try them with bacon…should be infinitely better! Thank you, Kate!
