Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Bacon


Something about Brussels sprouts and Bacon just go together like PB & J! The delicious flavor of bacon makes anyone - even the veggie afraid - LOVE their brussels sprouts. The perfect occasion to enjoy this recipe is none other than New Years Eve!

When cheese boards and mini meatballs are abundant on this night of the year, a green is always a welcome and enjoyed option. I like to either serve them on toothpicks or in a big cast iron skillet with forks on the side!  Not into a big party on the 31st? This is also just a great side dish for any occasion, especially a big family dinner.  The best part is that these Brussels sprouts is that they are also going to be perfect to take into the new year when you start your new year's resolutions - they always involve more vegetables right?!  

Now it’s time to get some Ocean Mist Brussels Sprouts, your favorite bacon, and get to work! I hope you have a wonderful New Year’s and a fabulous 2018!
