Oven Roasted Brussel Sprouts


I've never liked brussel sprouts.
I've made them 2 or 3 times and couldn't even swallow. haha.
That is until this time!  I made up this recipe which is very similar
to the way I roast asparagus.
Everyone loved these and I think we all could have finished off the
pan alone!  

Oven Roasted Brussel Sprouts

Cut fresh brussel sprouts in half and arrange in a greased pan.
I used a large bag, about 36 sprouts.
Liberally sprinkle with salt, pepper, soy sauce, and brown sugar.
Drizzle with olive oil.
Layer on 1 package of bacon, cut in 1-2" pieces.  
Layer on 1 small onion, sliced thin.

Roast in a 400 degree oven for 1 hour, stirring occasionally,
until tender, well browned and bacon is crisp.

Enjoy!

    1. well, scale down the recipe to 2 servings and let me know what you think :)

      Had so much fun...I never get to shop for girls! Her wish list said a Disney Princess doll and gave her clothes and shoe size. I got her 2 princess dolls with matching backpack and coloring book. A set of pj's, a sweatpant/shirt outfit, socks, boots, tennis shoes and slippers. The dolls are Aerial and Snow White. :) Fun, fun!
