brussel sprouts and bacon

Some ideas for a Paleo Christmas….


  • 1½ pounds Brussels sprouts
  • 2-3 tablespoons melted coconut oil
  • Kosher salt and pepper
  • 4 bacon slices, diced
  • Aged balsamic vinegar

(Serves 4-6 people)


  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Trim the ends and any old outer leaves from the Brussels sprouts.
  • Cut the sprouts in half and toss them with melted coconut oil, salt, and pepper.
  • Dump them on a foil lined baking sheet, making sure to keep everything in one layer.
  • Sprinkle the diced bacon over everything and pop the tray in the oven.
  • The sprouts take about 30 to 35 minutes to roast, so set your timer for 10minutes intervals to regularly rotate and flip the sprouts.
  • Check for seasoning and drizzle some of the aged balsamic vinegar on the finished dish.


Bonus: The same technique for roasting these Brussels sprouts also works with cauliflower and broccoli!
