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.

  • Toss brussels sprouts with remaining 4 tablespoons oil; season with salt. Add to baking sheet; toss to combine. Roast, tossing once, until sprouts are tender and browning at edges and oranges are deeply caramelized, 25 to 30 minutes more.

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!
