Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Bacon and Blue Cheese (Gluten-Free)


  • 2 lbs. Brussels sprouts
  • 10 strips bacon
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/4 cup medium blue cheese, crumbled

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Cut bacon into bite-size pieces. In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until done. Remove from pan with slotted spoon and allow to drain on a paper towel-lined plate. Reserve bacon grease.

Meanwhile, cut ends off Brussels sprouts, remove outside leaves and cut in half. Place Brussels sprouts in a bowl. Add 2 tbsp. reserved bacon grease and 1 tbsp. olive oil to the sprouts and stir to combine. Season with salt and pepper. 

Spread Brussels sprouts in a roasting pan or on a baking sheet in an even layer. Bake for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally so they evenly brown. After 30 minutes, raise the oven temperature to 450 degrees F and cook for an additional 5 minutes or until Brussels sprouts are crispy.

Remove from the oven and immediately stir in bacon pieces and crumbled blue cheese. Pour into a serving platter and serve immediately.
