Brussels sprouts are tasty prepared many various ways, but roasting them makes gives them a crispy, nutty flavor that makes them delicious! But this recipe turns a beloved vegetable into a star side dish! I’ve had people that don’t like Brussels sprouts absolutely rave over this! Crisp salty bacon and sweet pomegranate, along with balsamic and maple syrup give this recipe an elevated flavor profile that makes it a crowd favorite!

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. Robyn, just have to come on here and give you props. My husband and I do not like Brussels sprouts and never have, but in our continued effort to eat more vegetables, I decided to try this. We both absolutely loved it. And it is true when they say the pomegranates take it to another level, but so does that maple/balsamic drizzle. This is now going to be in our dinner rotation (as is your shredded beef recipe and best baked chicken breasts!). Tonight I will be making the ribeye fajitas. Quickly becoming your number #1 fan here! Thanks for sharing all this goodness.

    1. Oh, thank you so much, Roxy. I’m really pleased when I hear that someone loves my recipes. I love the Brussels sprouts story.
