Christmas is officially 6 days away! December is flying – literally. Yesterday I planned my Christmas dinner menu which you can read about here. I need dessert suggestions, so please let me know if you have any!
These roasted brussel sprouts with cranberries and bacon WILL be making a Christmas dinner appearance! Anything with bacon is generally a hit, so may as well sneak some greens in with the bacon.
Cranberries are tart. This is a fact. Therefore, if you (or your fam) wants this a bit sweeter I would suggest adding 1 tsp of hot maple syrup. Or you can mix 1/2 tsp of sugar with the cranberries prior to cooking. Either way, both of these options will work.
The color mixture of the brussel sprouts and cranberries are perfect for Christmas! So festive and your guests are sure to notice. This dish can be easily cooked early and reheated when you’re ready to eat which leaves you more time with your family – WIN! Cheers!
- 1.5 lbs brussel sprouts
- 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 1 cup fresh cranberries
- 4 pieces cooked bacon
Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Trim and half brussel sprouts. Mix cranberries, brussel sprouts, and olive oil
Place on a lined large baking sheet. Cook for 35-40 minutes or until brussel sprouts brown and cranberries explode
Transfer to serving dish. Chop bacon and mix with brussel sprouts and cranberry mixture. Sprinkle a few fresh cranberries on top. Serve & enjoy!
If you're making bacon for this recipe, cook the bacon prior to putting the brussel sprouts in the oven. Substitute 1 tbsp olive oil for 1 tbsp bacon grease.
