You’re a Sprout


I spent a nice chunk of Thanksgiving weekend addressing my little brother as a sprout. He then started calling my nephew a sprout who then called quite a few of us sprouts. In honor of this festive nickname, I tried a new Brussel sprout recipe that was most delicious – and quite easy too.

You’re a Sprout Sprouts

  • 2 lbs. Brussel sprouts, cleaned and halved
  • 1 carmelized shallot or onion
  • 8 cloves of garlic, smashed
  • 6 slices of crispy bacon, diced
  • 2 T. Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • Dried cranberries, if you’re really festive
  1. Pre-heat oven to 425F.
  2. Toss sprouts, onion, garlic, bacon, olive oil in a bowl. Mix together with hands until sprouts are coated in oil.
  3. Spread mixture between two jelly roll trays.
  4. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until sprouts are crispy.
  5. Relocate sprouts to serving bowl and top with cranberries if desired.

There, now you’re a Sprout!
