Everything tastes better with bacon and our roasted Brussels sprouts are no exception. The oven-roasting process caramelizes and crisps the leaves, turning even hardcore carnivores into veggie lovers. When I made my first Brussels Sprouts with Bacon, my family was instantly hooked onto it and I wanted to share the love with my keto family.
Brussels sprouts and bacon are, in my humble opinion, one of the best food pairings of the modern era. Good-bye soggy, bitter, unwelcome side-dish of my childhood — oven-roasted brussels sprouts are perfectly crispy, tender, and delicious. The bacon just adds a whole new level of crispy, savory delight.
And when this pair come together as an oven-roasted hash topped with fried eggs? Hello, breakfast heaven!
Brussels sprouts are not exactly low in carbs.
- A single serving of 85 grams clocks in at 5 net carbs (8 grams of carbs minus 3 grams of fiber).
- This doesn’t mean that they’re off the Keto menu, though! When paired with carb-free foods like bacon and eggs, they can make for a perfect Keto meal.
Long live brussels sprouts and bacon!
The best part about this breakfast (besides the part where it includes brussels sprouts and bacon and eggs) is that it only takes minutes to prepare. And while your hash roasts, you can clean up the kitchen, cook up your eggs, and be ready to go!
(anyone else love having the kitchen cleaned before they eat the meal, or is that just me?)
And before we begin , remember you are master of your bacon and brussels, so feel free to throw in your favorite garlic, ginger and other spices. I an more of a traditional gal to I stick to what my mom taught. So here you go!!! enjoy..
