Roasted Bacon Apple Brussels sprouts:
If I had to choose one favorite roasted vegetable, it would definitely be roasted Brussels sprouts. I like making these as a side dish to go with a variety of meals. But because Thanksgiving is around the corner I thought this would be a great side dish to add to the menu.
What you will need:
- Brussels sprouts
- Buy Ranch Direct Bacon or any Bacon you prefer
- Gala Apple
- Homemade candied pecans
How to prepare:
Preparation of these Brussels sprouts are easy and basically fool proof. First, I chopped everything into bite size pieces, for bacon I did a rough chop. Then, I added all the ingredients (except the candied pecans) to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and roasted 400 F for 20-25 minutes. Once done I broiled for a few minutes to get extra crispy, but I just kept an eye on them so they didn’t burn.
Meal prep ahead of time:
I like to meal prep this dish ahead of time. Because it is one less thing I have to do during my busy weeks. I get asked all the time, don’t the vegetables get soggy? And honestly, I don’t have a problem with them getting soggy. But what helps me prevent them from getting soggy is to make sure I cool the vegetables completely before storing, I also do less cook time, and limit amount of oil used to roast.
How to reheat:
If I meal prep these ahead of time, the way that I reheat them is to bake 400 F on a lined baking sheet for about 10 minutes. This is why when meal prepping them I cut the cook time, because I will be reheating throughout the week. But they also taste good cold too and have had them in a salad many of times.
