Servings: 4


  • 1 Pound Brussel Sprouts
  • 5 Slices Thick Cut Bacon
  • 1 Tablespoon Avocado Oil
  • 1 Tablespoon Maple Syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt 
1/4 tsp. Black Pepper
1/8 tsp. Cayenne Pepper


  • Preheat oven to 400 Degrees Fahrenheit and place oven rack in middle position.
  • Prepare Brussel sprouts by removing stem end and cutting in half lengthwise. Repeat process until all Brussel Sprouts are done.
  • Cut slices of bacon into 1/4 inch slices crosswise.
  • Place Brussel Sprouts on oiled sheet pan. If you like you can foil the pan but great the foil a bit with whatever oil you are using.
  • Place sprout face down to get the best caramelization and color.
  • Place chopped bacon on top of sprouts and drizzle with avocado oil and maple syrup.
  • Season with salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper (if using).
  • Toss together the spices, sprouts and bacon until well coated.
  • Once everything is coated well turn the sprouts face down and distribute the bacon pieces evenly so they get good contact with the pan and caramelize.
  • Place in oven for 20 to 30 minutes. Check after 20 to see if you are getting good color n the sprouts and that the bacon is looking good. If more cooking is needed let cook full 30 minutes and enjoy.
