Happy Thanksgiving, Peeps!
Are you one of those people who never know what to bring to a Thanksgiving gathering? This year, bring something that is both a crowd pleaser and doesn’t pack on the calories. I actually made this dish for a Friendsgiving gathering and it wasn’t long before it was all gone! This recipe is super easy as it doesn’t have that many ingredients and once it’s put together, the oven does the rest of the work!
1 – pound Brussels Sprouts, trimmed and cut in half
¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
3 Tablespoons Pure Maple Syrup
4 Slices bacon, cut into ½ inch pieces
½ Teaspoon Salt
¼ Teaspoon freshly ground Black Pepper
Prep Time: 10-minutes
Cook Time: 35-minutes
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (200 degrees C)
Place the Brussels Sprouts in a single layer into a baking dish (preferably glass).
Drizzle with olive oil and maple syrup, toss the sprouts to coat.
Sprinkle with bacon and season with salt and black pepper.
Roast in the preheated oven for about 35-minutes, or until the bacon is crispy and the sprouts are caramelized. Every so often, stir so they don’t get stuck or burned.
