Bacon and Brussels

Given our namesake, it is only appropriate that we share our favorite brussels recipes with you. Brussels sprouts are a staple in our house and offer rich nutritional value as well as delicious nutty flavor that both vegans and omnivores are sure to love. Jess prefers her brussels sprouts with a hint of lemon and a spicy kick, while Nikki prepares hers with every carnivore’s favorite: bacon. But even if we’re pressed for time during a busy work week, brussels sprouts can still be a quick and healthy side dish. Just drizzle the brussels with a little olive oil and salt and pop them in the oven (at 400 degrees) for 35-40 minutes. If you’re in the mood for something a little more adventurous, click the Read More link below to check out our favorite preparations of this hearty vegetable.
