How to Make Roasted Brussels Sprouts

To make this, you’ll need these ingredients:

  • Bacon
  • Brussels Sprouts
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Balsamic Vinegar
  • Maple Syrup
  • Pomegranate Seeds (Arils)

To start, I cook my bacon in the oven on a baking sheet, then remove the bacon and toss in my Brussels sprouts, sprinkle with the salt and pepper and toss them to make sure they are well coated. Then, I roast them until they are tender, about 20 minutes.

While they are roasting, I stir together my maple syrup and balsamic vinegar. Then, once they’ve finished roasting, I remove the baking sheet from the oven and drizzle the Brussels sprouts with the maple syrup mixture, and add the crumbled bacon and pomegranate seeds and toss to combine.

  1. My children would never eat brussel sprouts until I started roasting them. They now fight over who gets the last one in the dish.

    1. Roasting them does make such a difference in the flavor, doesn’t it! I hope you enjoy this dish if you give it a try – it’s delicious! Thanks, Margaret!

  2. i made this for lunch for the week and will be finishing off my last bits today. It was so good! normally i’d attribute that to the bacon but the pomegranate seeds were especially delicious in this.

  3. This roasted brussels sprouts with pomegranate and bacon looks really yummy! Will try it definitely! I found your post from Pinterest! I’m also gonna pin this post on my Pinterest board my followers will love it. Thanks for sharing!

    1. I’m glad you found it and are giving it a try, Jill! It is definitely a special, delicious dish and a great way to enjoy brussels sprouts! Thanks so much for pinning and sharing! Enjoy! xo

  4. If I make this ahead of time (and will have to double the recipe for our Thanksgiving feast), won’t the bacon get soggy when stored in the fridge? When I reheat it in the oven, will it crisp back up again? Or is it really best to make this dish just before serving it? Thanks for your advice!

    1. I love this dish made right before serving, but you can also make it ahead of time, if you need to. If you do need to make them ahead, I would roast the brussels sprouts with olive oil and then store the cooked brussels sprouts tightly wrapped in an oven-safe dish. About 30 minutes before serving, reheat them at 350º F until they are warmed throughout. Meanwhile, brown diced bacon and when the brussels sprouts have reheated give them a quick toss and stir in bacon and pomegranate seeds.

  5. When cooking the Brussel sprouts on same sheet that bacon was cooked on, do we cook them in the bacon grease? Or do I start with clean tray?

  6. Only a true southern lady will look you straight in the face and say “I cook them in the bacon grease,…Hope you enjoy!!!!! Happy Thanksgiving ya’ll
