Oven-Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Bacon
32 oz. Brussels Sprouts
2 Tbsp. Olive Oil
1 clove garlic, minced
Kosher Salt and Freshly Ground Black Pepper
6 Uncured Bacon Slices, cut into 1-inch pieces
Preheat oven to 400°. Wash and trim Brussels sprouts, cut off any brown ends or outer leaves and cut any large heads in half. In a large bowl drizzle Brussels sprouts with olive oil and toss until evenly coated. Pour the Brussels sprouts and garlic in a single layer on a large sheet pan and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Then, sprinkle the bacon pieces over Brussels sprouts. Roast in oven for 20-30 minutes, turning Brussels sprouts halfway through cook time, until golden.
