Keto Pan Roasted Brussels Sprouts

I didn’t eat a single brussels sprout until I was at least 26-crazy I know. My grandpa used to call brussels sprouts boiled baby brains to scare the kids away from eating them because they were his favorite. Now that I’ve tried them, I love them and I’m on the same page as my grandpa. I’m sharing this Keto pan roasted brussels sprouts recipe because it is a super simple Keto side dish and it tastes amazing!

    Step by Step Instructions

    Step 1

    Pre-heat the over to 400° F

    Step 2

    Cook bacon in a large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat, turning once to ensure it is cooked evenly on both sides. Cover pan with a splatter guard while cooking, if desired. 

    Step 3

    Remove skillet from heat and place cooked bacon on a wire rack set over paper towels to drain. Once cool, blot bacon with paper towels to remove excess fat before crumbling

    Step 4

    After skillet has cooled slightly, carefully drain the excess bacon fat into an empty can or other heat-safe container. If any fat drips down the side of the skillet, be sure to wipe it off with a damp dish cloth before putting it back on the burner

    Step 5 

    In a large bowl combine brussels sprouts and olive oil and toss to coat. Season with salt and pepper to taste 

    Step 6

    Heat cast iron skillet over medium-high heat and add Brussels sprouts and cook for several minutes until they begin to turn brown. Add the crumbled bacon to the skillet and place in the pre-heated oven 

    Step 7

    Roast for 20-25 minutes, stirring halfway through, until the sprouts turn a rich, caramelized color

    Step 8

    Remove skillet from heat and serve immediately
