Category:side dish, vegetable
Method:oven bake, roast
1/2 pound brussels sprouts, chopped into 1/2” x 1″ wedges
2 slices of bacon
1 medium apple, chopped into 1/2” cubes
1 Tbsp olive oil or avocado oil
1 pinch salt
2 Tbsp maple syrup
2 Tbsp yellow mustard
1 pinch of salt
Preheat the oven to 400 (F).
Chop the brussels sprouts to be about 1/2″ by 1″ wedges.
Chop the apple to be about 1/2″ cubes.
Lay the bacon on the baking sheet and arrange the brussels sprouts and apple around the bacon slices in a single layer, with space between each piece.
Drizzle with 1 Tbsp of oil and sprinkle with a pinch of salt.
Roast in oven for 20 minutes
While the brussels sprouts are in the oven, mix the maple syrup, yellow mustard, and pinch of salt together in a small bowl. Set aside.
Remove from the oven and cut the bacon into bite size pieces. (I like to do this with my kitchen scissors.)
Move to a serving bowl and drizzle the sauce on top.
Stir to spread the sauce around.
Substitute honey for maple syrup if you’d like.
It took 20 minutes in my oven for the brussels to get slightly browned and cooked perfectly. Start checking them around the 15 minute mark and remove them when they’re slightly browned and cooked through. Every oven is different, but 20 minutes worked for me.
