Brussels Sprouts with Oranges and Bacon

Recipe photo courtesy of Bryan Gardner

Small thin-skinned oranges work best here. Look for organic, as you are going to want to eat the whole fruit. The combination of sweet orange, lightly smoky bacon, and caramelized brussels sprouts is absolutely addictive.

Cook's Notes

If you take the time to separate a few of the sprouts into leaves, you will be rewarded with crunchy, almost burnt bits along with the softer caramelized sprouts. You may find you want to make a whole tray of them. See ya later, kale chips!

    Unbelievably delicious. I used a naval orange and turkey bacon and staged their roasting per the recipe. I did add the brussel sprouts cut in half, but I think I might try quartering them next time to get more crispy edges. In any case, this combo of ingredients is a true winner.

    Amazing combo. Be patient, it's worth the yummy delicious flavors that come out of it.

    The flavor combination here is great....brussel sprouts, orange and bacon, but this recipe is total nonsense! A quick glance will tell you you're roasting 1/2 inch pieces of bacon in a 425 degree oven for about 45 minutes...and thin slices of orange for over an hour......everything will be charred black! No one seems to proof read these recipes at MS anymore, it's so sloppy. You need to REMOVE the orange after 10 mins, and REMOVE the bacon after about 10 minutes then add the sprouts for 30 mins
