Honey Roasted Brussels Sprouts

December 15, 2018


To be totally honest, this was my absolute FIRST time eating brussels sprouts. I have avoided them my WHOLE life. I told myself I wouldn’t like them and so I “didn’t like them.” That was until they showed up to my door in prepared veggie box that I ordered.

My mission was to make them so I would LOVE them!

And I will admit, I LOVED them!

Here is how….


  • 1 1/2 lbs brussels sprouts
  • 3 tbsp olive oil separated
  • 3/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tsp honey
  • 6 pieces of bacon or turkey bacon cooked.



  • Preheat oven to 425°F.
  • Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with cooking oil.
  • Trim off the outer, dry leaves, cut the bottom off and slice sprouts lengthwise. (I had really big brussels, and when I make them again I will cut them even smaller.)
  • In a large bowl, toss brussels sprouts with 2 tablespoons of olive oil, kosher salt and black pepper to coat thoroughly.
  • Transfer the brussels sprouts to baking sheet and roast until tender and caramelized, about 20 minutes.
  • Place brussels sprouts back in bowl. Add remaining tablespoon olive oil, balsamic vinegar and honey and toss to coat evenly.
  • Sprinkle in bacon pieces and toss!
  • Devour!
