Delicious and tender roasted brussels sprouts made with bacon, garlic, olive oil, salt, pepper, and grated Parmesan cheese.


  • 1 pound of brussels sprouts, halved or quartered
  • 34 strips thick-cut bacon, chopped (no need to precook)
  • 34 tablespoons olive oil
  • 23 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup fresh grated Parmesan cheese
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Rinse and dry brussels sprouts. Trim the stems and remove any yellow leaves, cut lengthwise into halves or quarters depending on the size.
  3. Place brussels sprouts in a mixing bowl. Toss with olive oil, garlic, salt, pepper, and bacon until coated and well-mixed.
  4. Place brussels sprouts on a greased baking sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden and tender.
  5. Just before serving, sprinkle brussel sprouts with Parmesan cheese and toss.


You can also cook these in an air fryer. Air fry at 400°F for 15-17 minutes, tossing halfway through for even cooking. I never preheat mine. The volume may have to be a little smaller depending on the size of your air fryer.

If you’re making for Thanksgiving and your oven is full, these can also be made on a stovetop in a skillet on medium heat. Usually takes 15 minutes.
