Easy Brussels Sprouts With Bacon Recipe

The 1 Surprising Ingredient to Roasting Perfect Brussels Sprouts

Roast the brussels sprouts in bacon, which acts as the fat, while brown sugar gives everything a sweet finish. Once the sprouts are about halfway done cooking, sprinkle in the sweet shallots, and cook until soft. After everything is nicely roasted, the sprouts, bacon, and shallots are tossed with a handful of sweet dried figs, seasoned with salt and pepper, and ready to be served!
