Recipe: Honey, Lemon and Bacon Brussels Sprouts
Although not everyone’s favourite vegetable, I do have a soft spot for brussels sprouts. I’ll eat them just about any way…Finely chopped in a salad, fried and, of course roasted. If you or someone in your life is not crazy about these green little guys, there’s always one thing that can make them better: Bacon! The brightness of the lemon, sweetness of the honey and saltiness of the bacon makes this dish the perfect side for dinner this winter!
What you’ll need…
2 cloves garlic (minced)
1 lemon (zested and juiced)
2 tbsp liquid honey
1 tbsp camelina oil
2 tsp ground black pepper
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
4 cups fresh brussels sprouts (trimmed and quartered)
4 strips double smoked, thick cut bacon (diced)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place the first 7 ingredients into a small bowl and whisk together. Put the chopped brussels sprouts and bacon into a separate bowl, pour mixture over top and toss until well-coated.
Place brussels sprout and bacon mixture into a large baking dish and let roast in the oven until sprouts are tender and have begun to carmelize, about 20 minutes.
Serve hot, straight out of the oven!
