ROASTED BRUSSELS SPROUTS WITH BACON & PECANS

Not everyone likes brussel sprouts,  but not everyone cooks them with Bacon!  Bacon makes everything better, though I personally love brussel sprouts!  Lauren Keatings new cookbook Healthy Eating One-Pot Cookbook is full of wonderful recipes that can be part of an easy and healthy Meal Plan.  Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Bacon & Pecans are one of the recipes I new I had to make right away.

 

There were a few things that I liked about it.

  1. Brussels Sprouts – I like them!
  2. Bacon – enough said
  3. Meal Prep friendly; think prepaheadbles!
  4. Easy to cook

I have tried both of these recipes and highly recommend them.  The Red Curry Ramen is made in the Instant Pot and Korean Pulled Chicken Lettuce Cups is a slow cooker meal.  Her Healthy Eating One-Pot Cookbook is all one-pot meals featuring the Instant Pot, Slow Cooker, Sheet Pan, Dutch Oven and Skillet.

ROASTED BRUSSELS SPROUTS WITH BACON & PECANS

Crispy roasted Brussels sprouts are one of my favorite winter vegetables. This recipe gets an upgrade from crispy bacon and sweet shallot. A splash of vinegar stirred in at the end brightens everything. This recipe is perfect for winter holidays—make a double batch because they go fast!
