Maple-Roasted Brussel Sprouts

Some people love them, and some people just haven’t discovered this recipe yet.  Brussel sprouts get a bad rap, but usually it’s because of the way they were prepared back in the day (boiled or steamed until grey and mushy, giving a less-than-pleasant odor to the entire house).  But, roasting them and giving them a chance to caramelize transforms them into tiny little gems of deliciousness!

Maple-Roasted Brussel Sprouts

Makes: 4 servings

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Bake Time: 45 minutes

Total Time: 55 minutes


  • 2 pound Brussels sprouts, trimmed
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 6 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 8 slices bacon, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper


Preheat oven to 400°F.

Place Brussels sprouts in a single layer in a baking dish. Spread onto two sheets if they are too crowded (they won’t caramelize if they are too crowded; instead, they will steam). Drizzle with olive oil and maple syrup; toss to coat. Sprinkle with bacon; season with salt and black pepper.

Roast in the preheated oven until bacon is crispy and Brussels sprouts are caramelized, 45 minutes, stirring halfway through.
