When mentioning Roasted Brussel Sprout people normally go I don't like Roasted Brussel Sprout and will shy away from even trying them no matter how good they are. So, when you add bacon, apples and sweet potatoes to mix it will bring delight to even the biggest Roasted Brussel Sprout hater. We love to serve this as a side or a good paleo meal.
Roasted Brussel Sprout, Bacon, Sweet Potato and Apple Hash
What is needed:
3 slices nitrate-free bacon
1 bushel of Brussel sprouts (about 1 pound), ends cut off and cut into 4 pieces
1 medium sweet potato, diced
1 apple, diced (I used a fuji apple)
sea salt and fresh ground pepper
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
In a large cast iron oven proof skillet, cook bacon slices over medium-high heat. Once bacon is cooked set aside, reserving bacon grease.
In skillet still over medium-high heat (with bacon grease) cook sweet potato for 5 minutes. Then transfer skillet to preheated oven and roast for about 10 minutes. Then add prepared brussel sprouts and apple to skillet and place back in oven and roast for an additional 20 – 25 minutes until brussel sprouts are slightly golden. Make sure not to overcook. In the last minute, dice bacon and stir into hash. Season with salt and pepper.
Serve immediately on it’s own or along the side of a main dish.
