How to Make Maple Roasted Brussels Sprouts

  1.  Trim the Brussels Sprouts. Cut them in half. Cut and peel the sweet potatoes. Dice the onion. Preheat the oven to 400°F/200°C.

  3. Place the bacon slices on a baking tray on top of a rack.
  4. Put the vegetable mixture in the oven and place the tray on top. Roast for 10 minutes.
  5. Remove the tray from the oven, flip the bacon. Continue roasting for another 10 minutes until crisped to your liking.

    • Preheat oven to 400°F Place all the ingredients, except the bacon in a large bowl. Coat everything with the maple and olive oil.

    • Return to oven and roast for 10 minutes more. If bacon is not crisp enough for your tastes, continue roasting until you get the desired crispiness.
    • When bacon is done, remove it from the oven. Again, turn the vegetables and check them for doneness.
    • Slice or crumble bacon into thin strips and sprinkle on the vegetables.
    • NOTE; If using pork bacon, render some of the fat out of the bacon first, in a separate skillet.
