How to Make Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Bacon and Parmesan
This recipe is very easy to make. To start, preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Then, wash the Brussels sprouts. For this dish, I sliced off the bottom, removed any dirty leaves and then sliced them into quarters. See our How to Clean and Cut Brussels Sprouts post if you need more information. Next, in a mixing bowl, combine the sprouts, olive oil, chopped bacon, salt, and garlic powder.
Stir all of the ingredients in the mixing bowl and pour onto a baking sheet. Roast in the oven for about 20 minutes then stir. Roast for another 20 minutes or until they reach your desired color. Next, remove from the oven and top with freshly grated parmesan cheese and add a drizzle of balsamic vinegar glaze (optional). Serve immediately.
