Total Time 30 minutes
Servings 5 people
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 lb. fresh brussels sprouts, trimmed and cut in half (lengthwise)
- 1/4 tsp salt
- pepper to taste
- 4 strips of bacon, cut into small 1/2 inch pieces
- 1/3 cup dried cranberries
- optional 1 tablespoon of butter or olive oil to drizzle on at the end
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees, grab a large sheet pan.
Put the brussels sprouts on the sheet pan and drizzle with the olive oil, salt, and pepper. With clean hands toss the brussels sprouts so they are coated evenly with the oil.Sprinkle the bacon over top of the brussels sprouts, making sure the bacon is not in large clumps. By separating the pieces you will ensure you end up with crispy bacon.Bake for 15 minutes, flipping the brussels sprouts and bacon half way thru with a spatula.
Add the cranberries and cook for an additional 5 minutes.
If your bacon did not release enough grease and the brussels sprouts look a little dry you can toss everything with an additional tablespoon of olive oil or melted butter at this point.
