Delicious Syn Free Oven Roasted Brussel Sprouts With Bacon.
Brussel Sprouts.. Love them or Hate them.. they are usually a big debate at Christmas. I absolutely adore sprouts, even when I was a child I would eat them first before touching anything else on my plate (yes yes I am a little strange). But Mr Fatgirlskinny HATES them.. so we don’t have them often. I find roasting them with bacon makes all the difference and is a bit of a twist on the boring traditional dish. (Oh and it’s Syn free too)
I have created this recipe to inspire you to try something new at Christmas and for anyone who is convinced they don’t like Brussel Sprouts. I always believe the reason people dislike them so much is because they over cooked and mushy. The trick is to roast them at a high temperature so that they are crispy on the outside and soft on the inside (not soggy).
