Happy Thanksgiving with Brussel Sprouts

I know many people love Thanksgiving for all of the rich decadent side dishes that come with this holiday. While I always say it’s ok to indulge once in awhile and it is actually needed at times to help keep us on track it might be a good idea to add some healthy options to your Thanksgiving meal. I chose Brussel Sprouts as my vegetable of choice for this post. Since they are normally abundant in grocery stores this time of year and are one of my all time favorite vegetables. I will provide two different recipes one that is a little healthier and another that is a little more decadent.

Roasted Garlic Brussel Sprouts

2 pounds brussel sprouts each cut in half

⅛ cup olive oil

½ tsp garlic powder

Salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a large bowl toss brussel sprouts in olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper. Take coated brussel sprouts and place in a large pan. Bake for about 35 minutes turning brussel sprouts half way through with spatula.

The decadent recipe follows the above step, but before placing in oven take 6 slices of bacon diced and evenly distribute on top of sprouts.
