Brussel Sprouts with bacon and the best caramelized onions you’ve EVER had! Everyone will be begging to eat their veggies when this dish is involved!
If you’ve been following along you may be wondering, “does she know it’s January? Everyone wants healthy recipes!” Yes!! I do know it’s January! And I absolutely know everyone wants healthy recipes. Which is why I made you a veggie dish! Brussels Sprouts. We can all ignore the fact that these are loaded with bacon right?? Actually, no. Don’t ignore that. That’s why these are so amazing! Although, really, brussels sprouts don’t need help. I totally have a thing for brussels sprouts. I consider them the cutest vegetable.
Sigh. See what I mean? So pretty. Sidenote: I absolutely had to google to verify the spelling. Is it just me or does it feel awkward to say brusselS Sprouts. I can’t say I ever really pronounced it like that. Just one S is usually involved. Now I know. Please tell me I’m not the only one just now realizing this?
Usually I just roast these little babies with some oil and salt and pepper. But somedays I feel like getting fancy. And usually that involves bacon. Or cheese. No cheese today. Sad I know. You can absolutely add some though if you want! No judging here.
This is a really easy side dish to toss together for the fam. And I admit that I’m not a huge fan of onion and neither are my kids. But these caramelized onions were eaten happily and with real smiles. Not those fake smiles as the kids pick at their zoodles smiles.
