I am not sure I ever had Brussel sprouts growing up, which is weird because as a kid I was pretty adventurous with food and liked a lot of vegetables. Poor Brussel Sprouts were the example of a gross and sad vegetable. Here’s what all of us 80s kids didn’t realize…Brussel Sprouts are DELICIOUS! Seriously, incredible. And also, really easy to cook.
A little olive oil, a little salt and pepper and then roast them on up. Then just to make them even more special, I threw on a little bacon to add some savory and salty flavor. These are so good and you also get a delicious byproduct because sometimes the Brussel Sprout leaves fall off and get super crispy. Holy addicting.
