I don’t know about you, but most things are made better with bacon! This recipe is no exception! Brussels sprouts can be tricky to jazz up and most people just steam them without considering that roasting them can be delicious!

This Roasted Maple Bacon Brussels Sprouts recipe will leave you wanting to add seconds to your plate. You could eat this as a dinner meal on top of rice or eat it for breakfast on its own.

The bacon grease makes all the other ingredients crisp up nicely while adding an amazing depth of flavour!

Know how those kale chips that were ever so popular a few years ago had that crispy nutty flavour to them? Well, that’s what the outside of the Brussels sprouts do in this recipe! The inside remains soft and sort of explodes when you bite into them.

Place baking sheet in the oven for 22 minutes. When the timer goes off drizzle the maple syrup and a dash of salt over everything and turn to coat.
