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
- 3–4 strips thick-cut bacon, chopped (no need to precook)
- 3–4 tablespoons olive oil
- 2–3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/4 cup fresh grated Parmesan cheese
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Preheat oven to 400°F.
- Rinse and dry brussels sprouts. Trim the stems and remove any yellow leaves, cut lengthwise into halves or quarters depending on the size.
- Place brussels sprouts in a mixing bowl. Toss with olive oil, garlic, salt, pepper, and bacon until coated and well-mixed.
- Place brussels sprouts on a greased baking sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden and tender.
- 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.
