I love to cook (when I’m in the mood)!

Simple food.

Tasty food.

Things that doesn’t require 25 steps and never before heard of ingredients.


This may sound weird …

but I love these brussels sprouts as a snack.   They are also the perfect side dish for steak, pork or chicken.


They fill me up and doesn’t everything taste better with bacon?

No carbs, tastes great, baked with a few simple ingredients – what’s better than that?

  8. As I am scrolling down through the comments getting ready to type my oh so original comment {“everything tastes better with bacon”} I see that maybe everyone else also knows abut this bacon secret?? 😉 They look yum! I’ve only had them a few times {and once once an epic fail} so I need to try this PRONTO.

  9. I love brussel sprouts with lemon, salt, and garlic. This sounds even better! Rick would love them too I’m sure. Pinning 🙂

  10. Brussel sprouts are so yummy! My family thinks I’m crazy!!! I can make brussel sprouts with bacon now and eat the whole dish and they won’t even know what they’re missing. Thanks for an awesome recipe, Kelly. YUM!

  11. I make these regularly (before I found your recipe) but I add a fair bit of lemon juice and some garlic powder and trust me, the addition of lemon and garlic make it become out of this world!! I saute everything in a frying pan instead of roasting in the oven as well.

    I never imagined myself loving a vegetable so much.
