Roasting Brussels sprouts really brings out their nutty flavor, which goes so well with smoky bacon and sweet red onions.
2 pounds small Brussels sprouts, trimmed
1 red onion, peeled and cut into 1/3-inch wedges
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 bacon slices, chopped
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 400°.
Place Brussels sprouts and red onion on a baking sheet. Drizzle olive oil over vegetables, and sprinkle with salt and pepper, tossing to coat. Sprinkle bacon over top of vegetables.
Bake at 400° for 45 minutes or until Brussels sprouts and onion are golden and tender and bacon is crisp, stirring every 20 minutes.
