A bowl full of perfectly caramelized brussels sprouts combined with crispy bacon and garlicky aioli is what I imagine heaven to be like…or so I can only hope.
Roasted Brussels + Bacon + Garlic Aioli
1 pound brussels sprouts
2 tablespoons olive oil
Salt + cracked black pepper
3 strips crispy cooked bacon
1/3 cup mayonnaise
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
2 small garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon paprika
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Wash and trim ends. Halve (or quarter if large) brussels sprouts.
Arrange sprouts onto a cookie sheets and drizzle with olive oil, salt and pepper. Toss to coat evenly.
Roast in oven for about 30-35 minutes or until browned evenly. Cook bacon on stove top while sprouts are roasting. Once you have them cooked crispy and to your liking, about 12-14 minutes. Set aside.
Let’s move on to the aioli. In a small bowl whisk together all of the ingredients and set aside.
Remove sprouts from the oven and place in a serving dish of your choice. Drizzle with the aioli and top with crumbled, crispy bacon and cracked black pepper.
