Brussels Sprouts with Bacon

Brussels Sprouts with Bacon by The Mommy Games

Brussels sprouts are one of my go-to veggie sides, so I thought I would share one of my favorite ways to prepare them before they are totally out of season. Anything that involves bacon is usually a hit in our house, but I was still surprised to see my toddler gobbling these up. He’s exceptionally weary of anything green (he seriously will pick out tiny little pieces of herb from his soup!), so the fact that I can get him to eat a relatively large helping of these without promising to deliver 5-hours worth of Thomas on the tv makes this a win in my book. These are also a guaranteed hit with adults and instantly elevate a casual weeknight dinner. Hope everyone has a fabulous Spring weekend!



  1. Brussels sprouts are a favorite in my home as well. When cooking them for my husband, much like your toddler, I throw in some bacon to make him happy. When making them for myself, I need nothing more than a mandoline to shave them over salad and serve them raw. Off to explore more of your site!

    • Thanks Jessica! I don’t think I’ve ever had raw brussels sprouts, going to have to try that!

  2. Love brussels sprouts too!
    Forget about roast beef and potatoes, when I was a kid I sat with a plate of sprouts popping them into my mouth one by one whole. Delicious.

    I have grown up 😉 but I still love them. I wish I could get my kids to eat as many veggies.

    Thanks for the recipe – quick and easy and on the table tonight.

    • I wish my kids were that easy too Debbie! I keep thinking that as long as I stick with it, they will grow to love them someday (or at least I will know that I tried!). Glad you liked it!

  3. I hate brussels sprouts, but I will eat them if they have bacon in there.
