Oven-baked Brussels Sprouts

Not the most popular of vegetables, Brussel Sprouts often get a bad rap, but this recipe will have you changing your mind. Taken from Clean Living Quick and Easy by Luke Hines and Scott Gooding, the Oven-baked Brussels Sprouts are an ideal side dish to add more veggies to your dinner.

Serves: Four

Time: 50 minutes 


  • 500g Brussels sprouts
  • 50g butter, melted
  • sea salt to taste
  • 3 rashers bacon, rind removed and diced
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 lemon, juice and zest


Preheat your oven to 200°C. Trim the hard bases of the brussels sprouts and cut the larger ones in half, leaving the smaller ones whole. Toss them in the melted butter and season well with salt. Lay the sprouts on a baking tray and top with the diced bacon, making sure you have just one layer, and the sprouts aren’t overcrowded. Bake for 30 minutes, turning them every 10 minutes or so to get an even crispy outside. Serve drizzled with the apple cider vinegar and lemon juice and with the lemon zest scattered over.

    I remember seeing a Dagwood cartoon years ago where Dagwood tells the cook at the cafe that if Eve had offered Adam a brussel sprout instead of an apple "we'd all (men) still be living in paradise". Yes, very un-PC but it does express my feelings about this nasty little vegetable.

    I like Brussel Sprouts boiled and mashed with a little butter, but oven baked with Bacon sounds nice I will give it a go

    Brussels sprouts lovely I buy them frozen then there is no waste and they are not riddled with insects etc. Just pour and cook....yum...always there in the freezer and don't have to rely on seasonal availability.
