Crispy Brussel Sprouts with Bacon and Garlic

Roasted Brussel Sprouts with Bacon merge the goodness of tender roasted Brussels sprouts along with the indulgence of crisp smoky bacon and loads of sweet garlic.

Brussels sprouts always make the top of my favorite veggie list! I love them baked, roasted, boiled and they’re even amazing raw in a Brussels Sprout Salad!

Apart from being ridiculously cheap and oh-so-pretty, brussels sprouts are very healthy too. If you like to eat them, you’re one lucky person.

2 bacon rashers, minced
2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
¼ cup (60ml) olive oil
2 tablespoons rock salt, sea salt or “Kosher” salt
Salt and pepper

Peel off any bad leaves from the brussel sprouts
Bring a pot of water to the boil. Add rock salt.
Blanch brussel sprouts for 4 minutes then drain and refresh in cold running water.
