Bacon-roasted Brussels sprouts with fresh green apples is a simple side dish that’s easy to make. The bacon and sprouts roast together until the Brussels sprouts caramelize and are tender. Toss them with some chopped garlic and diced apples and you get a combination of flavors and textures that is so delicious.


  • 24 ounces Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved or quartered
  • 6 slices bacon, cut into 1/2” pieces
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 cups diced green apples (1/4” cubes)
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon chopped parsley
  • 2 pinches each kosher salt and ground black pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Spread the Brussels sprouts on a baking sheet in an even layer. Place the bacon in an even layer on top of the sprouts.
  2. Roast the sprouts and bacon for 15 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven and stir them around and roast them for 10 to 15 minutes longer or until the sprouts are browned in spots and fork tender.
  3. Take the sprouts out of the oven. Combine them with the garlic and apples. Drizzle the apple cider vinegar over the top and stir it all together. Sprinkle the parsley, salt and pepper over the top and serve. I do all of this while the sprouts are still on the baking sheet or you can transfer them to your serving bowl and add the other ingredients.
