Roasted Brussel Sprouts with Bacon and Red Onions

I love brussel sprouts, I hate over boiled soggy brussel sprouts! I've never cooked brussel sprouts before cooking this recipe. I didn't want to boil them so searched the net for some inspiration and put this simple recipe together.  This should make about 6 servings to accompany a nice meal. After I made it though, we both ate all of it in one go, it was that good!

500g Brussel Sprouts
250g Streaky Bacon
1 Red Onion
Splash of Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper, to taste

1. Pre-heat the oven to 350F/180C. Wash and dry brussel sprouts, trim bottoms and cut them in half.
2. Place the brussel sprouts face down in a baking dish and drizzle with olive oil, a little salt and pepper. Roast for 15-20 minutes.
3. Meanwhile, fry the bacon in a pan on a medium-low heat until crispy. Drain on paper towels and then roughly chop.
4. Turn the heat down a little and fry the onion in the same pan until light brown and caramelized.
5. Place the sprouts in a mixing bowl with the bacon and onions. Mix to combine and then serve.



  1. mmm looks good. I'm not a fan of brussel sprouts but I'm trying to like them. I have to ask though, what is "streaky bacon"?

  2. Thanks!

    LOL Streaky bacon is what Americans would call bacon... so it's just strips of bacon with fat streaked through out the cut.

    What Brits call bacon is a different cut from the back and has more meat on it with a little bit of fat.
