Total Time 40 minutes
Servings 6 3/4-cup servings
- 8 ounces thinly sliced bacon
- 1 pound fresh Brussels sprouts
- 1/4 cup real maple syrup
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
Preheat an oven to 400⁰F.
Prepare a baking sheet by lining with parchment paper or non-stick foil.
Cut bacon into small pieces and fry in a skillet over medium-high until bacon is crispy.
Remove the bacon from the pan and drain on paper towels and set aside. Reserve the fat from the pan.
Prepare the brussels sprouts by trimming the hard stem end and removing any loose or yellowing leaves.
Slice any large brussels sprouts in half.
Add brussels sprouts to a bowl and add 2 tablespoons of reserved bacon fat, maple syrup, salt, and pepper and mix until all the brussels sprouts are covered.
Pour brussels sprouts onto the prepared baking sheet and place into the preheated 400⁰F oven.
Roast for 25 to 25 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes. Brussels sprouts are done when the outer leaves begin to turn medium to dark brown.
Remove from the oven and add the cooked bacon and stir to combine.
