Oven Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Bacon

  • Last Updated:

Oven Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Bacon is a simple, five-ingredient side dish recipe loaded with flavor and full of health benefits.


Ready or not, Thanksgiving is right around the corner! Are you ready? If not, I’ve got a 5-ingredient holiday side dish recipe that is not only packed with flavor but easy to make: Oven Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Bacon.


As I mentioned when I shared my Roasted Cauliflower with Jalapeño Caper Vinaigrette recipe recently, I always sign up to bring a vegetable dish during the holidays. Since I know there will be no shortage of indulgent classics like stuffing, mashed potatoes, marshmallow topped sweet potatoes and more, I like to be sure and bring at least one dish that is easier on the waistline.


Well guess what always happens? Everyone thanks me profusely for introducing a vegetable to the holiday table and it’s usually the first dish to be finished in the buffet. As an added bonus, these Oven Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Bacon are naturally gluten free and paleo-friendly. Boom.

Your fork is waiting.

  1. This sounds wonderful. I love roasted Brussels sprouts (the only way to eat them, IMO), and this takes it up another notch. Since I’ve recently gotten my husband to eat bacon, which he’s always said he doesn’t like, I might be able to make these…
