A Craving for Brussels Sprouts

I don’t know what my deal is but I have been CUH-raving Brussels sprouts lately. Maybe it was the article I read about them being one of the healthiest vegetables that peaked my interest…or maybe they just sounded good. Whatever the case, I got some from Trader Joe’s the other night and decided to make some to take to work tomorrow. And no, Metta, you can’t have any, you Brussels sprout fiend. To jazz up my sprouts, I added some turkey bacon and chopped onion. I feel like Brussels sprouts are kind of hit or miss: you either love them or you hate them. What do you think of the little fellas? If you’ve ever seen how they grow, you may change your mind — so cute!

Brussels Sprouts


  • 1 bag Brussels sprouts
  • Olive oil
  • Garlic salt
  • Pepper
  • 1 pkg turkey bacon
  • 1/2 white onion, chopped
  1. Rinse and trim the Brussels sprouts, removing the outer leaves. Cut into thirds. Place in a freezer bag and add olive oil (about 2 tablespoons) to coat the sprouts. Place on a foil-lined pan and sprinkle with garlic salt and pepper. Bake at 400 degrees F for 10 minutes. Flip after 10 minutes and cook for an additional 10 minutes, sprinkling again with salt and pepper.
  2. Meanwhile, cook onion and turkey bacon in a skillet until bacon is crisp and onion is soft. Add to Brussels sprouts, sprinkle with desired seasonings, and EAT!

    Look mom, no nitrates!
