  1. Preheat the oven to 450°F.
  2. Cut the roots off of the Brussels and slice them in half.
  3. Place the Brussels sprouts in a mixing bowl. Drizzle with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Sprinkle uncooked bacon pieces over the sprouts and toss with your hands. Spread out in a single layer on a baking sheet, making sure the Brussels sprouts are cut side down.
  4. Roast the Brussels sprouts for 15 minutes, then shake the pan or flip them. Roast for another 5 minutes or so, until they start to brown and the bacon is crispy. Taste and season with more salt and pepper, as needed. Serve hot.


  • Peel lots of outer leaves off and let them get charred. These are my favorite part!
  • Make sure the Brussels are turned face down and bake them on the lowest rack.
