Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425ºF. Evenly spread olive oil on a baking sheet. If you prefer crispy bacon, lay chopped bacon pieces flat on sheet and bake for 4 minutes first. (Otherwise mix everything together, except cranberries, on baking sheet and bake all at the same time).

  2. While bacon is partially cooking, in a microwave safe bowl place washed, cut Brussels sprouts along with 1 tablespoon of water. Cover with plastic wrap and microwave on high for 2-3 minutes, depending on how tender you prefer your Brussels sprouts to be in the end. Uncover and drain any leftover water.

  3. Place steamed Brussels sprouts, maple syrup, apples, salt and pepper on baking sheet with partially cooked bacon. Toss to combine. 

  4. Make sure Brussels sprouts are cut-side down and bacon is laying flat. Bake for 15 minutes. Remove from oven, toss, return Brussels sprouts to cut side down, and bake for 10 minutes more.
