Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Toss brussels sprouts and onions with just enough oil to coat; season with salt and pepper. Spread vegetables in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet. Fill center of apple with butter, and add to baking sheet. Roast until tender when pierced with a fork, about 30 minutes for the apple, 40 to 45 minutes for the vegetables.

  • Meanwhile, cook bacon in a large, heavy skillet over medium heat until fat renders and bacon begins to crisp, about 12 minutes. Pour off most fat, leaving behind enough to coat bottom of pan.

  • When onion and apple are cool enough to handle, cut into pieces about the size of brussels sprouts. Add onion, apple, and brussels sprouts to skillet, and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until heated through, about 15 minutes.

Sounds yummy, but how can you make it vegetarian and still get the smoky flavor of the bacon?

Yeah, wonderful combo. I like the brussels steamed first before the skillet rather than, not sure why. So much that can be done with this recipe according to mood - it's totally buildable and I like commenters suggestions. I added grape tomatoes (whole) last time I made this.

This recipe is so good I have made it 3 times (and have recommended it to friends) and will be having it with pork tenderloin on Sunday. I never liked Brussels sprouts until I made these. The apples (I use Granny Smith) and the bacon give it so much flavor and if you cook it for less time than recommended it is all a little firm to the bite. Wonderful Wonderful!

I made this according to their recipe and it was so so. The vegetables were overcooked and mushy. The flavor was rather flat. I did a few things differently the next time. I put the brussels sprouts in the oven by themselves. I cut up two apples and half an onion and sauteed them in the bacon grease. I added some cinnamon, nutmeg, raw sugar, and 1/4 cup golden raisins. I cut up the brussels sprouts and added them to the apple/onion mixture before serving. It was delicious.
