Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Applewood Smoked Bacon

With fall in full swing, it’s sadly time to start cleaning out the garden. 

Our first task – well, Frog Prince’s first task – was to pick our Brussels sprouts!  It was no small feat… look at the size of these plants!

We ended up with about 4 C of Brussels sprouts, and roasted them with applewood smoked bacon. 

It was a great side dish for a fall BBQ!

Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Applewood Smoked Bacon


  • 4 C Brussels sprouts
  • 1/2 C diced, cooked applewood smoked bacon
  • Olive oil


Begin by washing the Brussels sprouts and trimming the base off, as needed.  Toss the Brussels sprouts with olive oil. 

Arrange the Brussels sprouts on a foil-lined roasting tray.  Roast at 450 degrees for 20 minutes, tossing after 10 minutes. 

Then, toss in the 1/2 C cooked bacon. 

Continue roasting for another 5-7 minutes until veggies are crisp tender. 

Serve warm. 


  1. I LOVE brussels sprouts and roasting is a wonderful way to prepare them. I just bought some (no garden, sigh) so I'm going to make a similar dish this week!

  2. Great dish indeed, love brussells sprouts

  3. YUM! I love fresh brussel sprouts - my kids do too, but you really can't go wrong with bacon :)

  4. Your brussels sprouts turned out great!! We tried to grow them this year and they just turned into leafy spider egg holders...maybe next year. Random aside: I noticed Frog Prince has a Buffalo t-shirt on. Is that where he is from? That's my hometown :)

    1. He's from Upstate NY... just E of Rochester! We've driven through Buffalo many, many times :)

  5. Your Brussels Sprouts look great, those were very nice stalks, everything is so much better from the garden. Roasted with the Apple Wood Bacon would give them a fantastic flavor. Hope you are having a great week and thanks for sharing.
