Brown Sugar Bacon Brussel Sprouts

We usually call these our Thanksgiving Brussel Sprouts. I made them the other night for Luke who was coming home from a hard day at work, so I wanted to have something really good ready for him to eat. After making it I have to share this easy side dish! 

My sister makes these every Thanksgiving. There is just something about sweetness of the bacon mixed in with the salty sprouts that makes this dish delicous. Definitely a play on sweet and salty for sure and you can never go went with bacon! If you like Brussel sprouts or just looking for a new way to cook them try this dish! You can’t go wrong! The best part is that it’s super easy prep and baking for this dish! I hope you enjoy it with your family as much as mine enjoys it together at thanksgiving or any day of the week for that matter! 


Brussel Sprouts- 1 pound bag

Bacon-4 slices 

Brown Sugar- 1/4 cup

Smoked Paparika or Cayenne pepper powder (if you want a to add a little spice)-1/4 teaspoon

Olive Oil

Salt and Pepper to taste (1/4 teaspoon each)


Slice sprouts in half.

Drizzle with olive oil, salt and pepper. Bake in oven on 350 for 30 minutes or until tender. Half way through take spatula and mix them around to avoid having them stick to pan. 

While baking sprouts, Mix brown sugar and cayenne powder together. 

Take bacon and cut in half and press into brown sugar and cayenne powder mixture on both sides. 

Place in pan on stove and cook on medium low about 5 minutes each side or until cooked. 

Take off stove and allow bacon to cool. Look at that sugar glaze! YUM! 

Once cooled, chop bacon. May not be pretty but it’s going to be so gooood!

Add to sprouts and toss together.
