Brussels Sprouts

  • 8 cups brussels sprouts, halved
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper


  • 1 lb. thick-cut bacon, sliced into 1-inch chunks
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup


  1. First, preheat oven to 400ºF.
  2. Next, prepare Brussels sprouts by washing them to remove any excess dirt. Then, pat dry. Slice the ends off of each Brussels sprout and then cut them in half, hotdog wise.
  3. Transfer them onto a large baking sheet. Then, drizzle with a generous amount of olive oil and season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Toss, so that the Brussels sprouts are evenly coated.
  4. Roast Brussels sprouts at 400ºF for 15 minutes. Then, remove and toss. Roast for another 10-15 minutes or until the outsides begin to turn golden brown.
  5. While the Brussels sprouts are roasting, prepare bacon. Begin by slicing 1 lb. of bacon into 1-inch chunks. Using a pair of scissors works really well for this. Then, place the bacon into a large pan and heat over medium/high heat.
  6. Cook bacon for around 8-10 minutes, or until it is fully cooked, but not crunchy.
  7. Immediately drain excess grease from the bacon and then add maple syrup and mix to combine.
  8. Once the Brussels sprouts are done roasting, remove from oven. Add bacon to Brussels sprouts and toss to combine.
  9. Serve immediately.
