Who would have known, my husband loved this dish. I mean he had 4 helpings! After dinner I walked past the pan thinking I was going to poke one last sprout and the pan was empty, not a trace was left! This originally came for nomnompaleo.com but I changed it up a bit. What I did differently is added in apprentices.
1.5 lbs of Brussel sprouts
2-3 tablespoons of avocado oil, melted lard, or macadamia nut oil (coconut oil)
4 slices of bacon, diced (Applegate Turkey Bacon)
salt and pepper
aged balsamic vinegar (Carmel color free)
(1/3 chopped sweet onion)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Remove outer leaves and stems from brussel sprouts. Cut them in half. Melt coconut oil and toss brussel sprouts, add salt and pepper. Place in foil lined baking pan. Top with chopped bacon and onion. Bake for 30-35 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes so they are evenly cooked and flavors blend. When they are dine sprinkle with balsamic vinegar to taste. They are to die for.
