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.

Try out this easy recipe below and let me know what you think! Are you a Brussel Sprouts fan too?
