I have to admit, roasted Brussels sprouts with a little olive oil, salt and pepper is simple perfection. I make them often but on occasion I switch things up and make this lovely Bacon, Apple and Brussels Sprouts side. It’s easy to prepare and combines three distinct flavors that pair exquisitely together. The smokiness of the bacon combined with the sweet of the apple… honestly, I could eat these two ingredients all by themselves. But toss in some Brussels sprouts and the recipe somehow tastes complete.
Of course I throw in some fresh garlic and sometimes add a splash of parmesan to the finished dish. I think some shredded Irish cheddar would be tasty as well.
Not only does this make a great side dish or one dish meal, it’s a lovely side for all the holiday dinner celebrations. It happily accompanies turkey, prime rib, whole roasted salmon and a honey glazed ham. Now I’m hungry!
Just in case you’re not convinced Brussels sprouts are for you… I’ve added a few additional sides to browse. You know, just in case. 😉
Delicious Wishes and Loads of Love!
Several years ago I posted this Cauliflower Mashers recipe in a post with several other enticing side dishes.
Another lovely and sweet side for Roast Turkey and Honey Baked Ham.
A gorgeous and delicious salad easily prepped and served – making your holiday celebration stress free.
Hands down one of my favorite salads. Again, easy to prepare and so delicious paired with Roast Turkey, Whole Roasted Salmon, Duck Breast, Honey Baked Ham or Prime Rib.
Brussels Sprouts are grand all on their own, but combined in a gratin with cheese and cream totally elevates this dish to spectacular!
