Roasted Apple Bacon Brussels Sprouts - Recipe

     Once again it is fall and apples and Brussels sprouts are at the farmer's market.  I think fall is such an exciting time to get back into the kitchen and use the stove!  It seems like the last thing I wanted to do in the summer was turn on the oven when it was 100 degrees outside, but now it is wonderful to warm up the kitchen and roast these beautiful Brussels sprouts, apples, and bacon.  Remember, everything is better with bacon!

     You can serve it as is or drizzle your favorite balsamic vinegar on top.  I used one infused with apple.  I also tried putting some on top of my Barbecue Beef (Sloppy Joe's).  You can find the Barbecue Beef (this is what we called it in the Midwest) recipe in my Comfort Food Cookbook.  I also put some in my Sunday morning Farm Market Frittata!  I added 2 cups of the Roasted Apple Bacon Brussels Sprouts in place of the pea shoots and cooked meat.

Roasted Apple Bacon Brussels Sprouts

(Makes 4 cups)

1 lb. Brussels Sprouts
12 oz. - 1 lb. Bacon cut into 1 inch pieces
2 T. Olive Oil
1 Stayman Apple chopped
1 tsp. Course Sea Salt
4 Scallions Diced
Balsamic Vinegar Infused with Apple (optional)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

Cut the ends off of the Brussels sprouts and cut into quarters.  Place them into a mixing bowl.  Add the bacon, olive oil, apple, and salt.  Toss together and make sure the oil coats everything.  Place on a cookie sheet and roast for 45 minutes until the sprouts begin to caramelize.

Remove from the oven, place in a large bowl and mix in the scallions.  Serve with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar infused with apple.
