Oven Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Bacon

Apr 02, 2010
Recipe Type:

Homegrown Brussels sprouts are sweeter and nuttier than their industrially grown counterparts, especially after the first fall frost or two.


  • 1 pound Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved
  • 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • Juice of one lemon
  • 5 strips bacon, cooked to crispy and crumbled (optional)
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Place Brussels sprouts in a large bowl and toss with olive oil and lemon juice. Arrange sprouts in a single layer on a baking sheet and bake for 25 minutes (turning once or twice), or until tender and golden brown. Return Brussels sprouts to bowl, stir in bacon, lemon zest and additional lemon juice if desired. Salt and pepper to taste.
