Ingredients

  • 1 Lb Brussels sprouts trimmed and halved length-wise (about 1 1/2 lbs before trimming)
  • 2 Large apples roughly chopped (I used Fuji)
  • 2 Tbsp Better Body Foods Omega Oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 3 Slices Hickory-smoked bacon
  • 1/4 Cup Pomegranate seeds
  • 1 Tbsp Maple syrup

Instructions

  • Pre-heat you oven to 400 degrees.
  • In a large bowl, toss together the Brussels sprouts, apples and oil until well coated.
  • Spread out in one layer on a large, rimmed baking sheet, being careful not to crowd the sprouts. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Bake for 15 minutes, stir, and then bake for another 10-15 minutes until the sprouts are lightly browned.
  • While the sprouts/apples cook, heat a large frying pan to medium heat. Cook the bacon until golden brown and crispy, flipping once. Transfer to a paper-towel lined plate and press out any excess oil.
  • Transfer the cooked sprouts to a large bowl. Crumble the bacon in and add in the pomegranate seeds and maple syrup.
  • Toss to evenly mix and DEVOUR.
