Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 pound Brussels sprouts
  • 1 1/2 cup Butternut Squash, cut into cubes
  • 3 tbsp Cooking Oil
  • 3 tbsp Maple Syrup
  • 6 Strips Thick-Cut Bacon
  • 1 tsp Italian Seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp Sea Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Ground Black Pepper
  • 2 Jalapeños (optional)

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  • Trim the steam of the Brussels Sprouts and cut them in half. Cut the Butternut Squash into bite-sized cubes. Cut the bacon into ~1-inch slices. If adding jalapenos, slice the jalapenos into small dials.
  • Place all the ingredients, except the bacon, in a single layer on a baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil, maple syrup, salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning. Mix the ingredients together to fully coat the sprouts and butternut squash. Add the bacon to the sheet pan.
  • Roasted in the oven until the Brussels sprouts are caramelized and crispy on the outside and the bacon is crispy, about 40 minutes. Make sure to stir the ingredients halfway through.
  • Remove the Brussels Sprouts from the oven, drizzle with maple syrup (optional), and sprinkle with fresh ground pepper. Enjoy!

Notes

  • To Store. Place leftovers in an airtight storage container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
  • To Rewarm: Place the Brussels sprouts on a lightly oiled baking sheet and transfer to a preheated oven at 350°F for about 5-7 minutes. You can also warm them in the microwave for 30 seconds to 1 minute.
