roasted brussel sprouts with lemon and bacon

Makes 1 sheet tray

If you have thought you don’t like Brussel sprouts, please try this recipe and give them a chance. There is nothing soggy or slimy about them. Just caramelized, smoky sweetness. The roasted lemon slices are divine as well!


  • 5 cups Brussel sprouts
  • 3 strips raw bacon, cut in 1/2 inch pieces
  • 1 lemon, very thinly sliced
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp black paper
  • 1/2 tsp salt


Preheat your oven to 425F

Trim the funky outer leaves of the sprouts and cut them in half. Toss all ingredients together on a sheet tray and place on center rack in the oven. Roast till caramelized and tender. About 25 minutes, turning tray in oven about halfway through. Eat right away!
