I know some people aren’t a fan of Brussels sprouts because they can be mushy or even bitter tasting depending on how they were prepared. Roasting them is definitely the best and easiest way to cook them. Roasting them not only brings out their natural sweetness, but it also caramelizes them for extra flavor, and tenderizes them without making them mushy.

I love how simple this recipe is from A Family Feast. It’s just three ingredients, all prepared in one pan, and done in less than 30 minutes. You start by tossing a pound and a half of Brussels sprouts in some olive oil, season with salt and pepper, then spread them out on a baking sheet. Place some bacon pieces on top and some red onions if you’d like. Bake for 20 minutes and you’re done! The olive oil prevents the vegetables from drying out in the oven, and also helps crisp them up while cooking. The bacon adds another layer of smokey-salty flavor to the dish. The onions which are optional, but highly recommended, add another layer of sweetness and flavor as well.
