Crispy Brussel Sprouts with Bacon

Brussels sprouts are having a serious moment right now, and honestly we are ABOUT it. Now that the weather is cooling down we are so ready to fire up the oven. We can’t think of a better way to ring in fall than by busting out our favorite fall recipes, which means this week we are cooking up brussels sprouts with bacon. This recipe has it all, vegetables, healthy fats, protein, and carbs (healthy carbs, don’t worry). We love to use Garrett Valley Farms Paleo Bacon for this recipe. Garret Valley Farms has humanely raised, vegetarian fed, antibiotic free pork that is the perfect bestie for your friends the brussels sprouts.
