Serves: 4-8
 
What You'll Need
  • 2 - 4 pounds (depending on how many you have at your holiday table!) small brussels sprouts (each about 1 inch in diameter), trimmed, halved through root end
  • 1½ (double if using more brussles sporouts) cups diced bacon
  • Juice of 1 lemon, (double if using more brussles sporouts)
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • ½ (or more) cup of grated asiago cheese (or parm, or nutritional yeast if wanting it vegan)
  • 1 tbsp. (or more) real maple syrup (the dark stuff)
  • Optional: 1 cup of shaved almonds
How You Do
  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Toss brussels sprouts in medium to large bowl with bacon, lemon juice, zest, maple and optional shaved almonds.
  2. Toss and spread brussels sprouts onto a parchment lined baking sheet in single layer.
  3. Roast brussels sprouts until tender and beginning to brown, stirring every 10 minutes, about 40 minutes.
  4. Transfer to bowl, sprinkle with the grated asiago (parm or NOOSH) and serve.
  5. You can also do this dish in a crock pot on slow for 4 hours, which I typically do for Xmas, as oven space is scant.
