Here is another Thanksgiving recipe idea: Roasted Brussels Sprouts on the stalk. This one is prepared with bacon and a honey sriracha glaze.

This weekend, I spent some more time recipe testing for Thanksgiving. I love finding Brussels Sprouts on the stalk this time of year and almost always have one in my fridge. I’ve wanted to experiment with roasting the whole thing while still on the stalk and I finally got around to trying it.

I usually buy my stalks from Trader Joe’s, but this one I bought at Whole Foods because their stalks are a little shorter, so that I can fit it into my oven and on my baking pan.

I really enjoyed how this came out. Guests can easily cut off the cooked sprouts from the stalk and grab some honey sriracha glazed bacon to eat with it.

You may have noticed, I also tried a little something different for these photos. It’s been so cloudy lately that I wanted to play around with darker photos. Hope you like it.

 These Brussels sprouts on the stalk are roasted with a honey sriracha glaze.

Ingredients:

  • 4 slices thick bacon
  • 1 Brussels sprouts stalk
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp sriracha

Directions:

  1. Cook bacon in a skillet, reserving fat.

  2. Mix honey with sriracha in a small bowl and then set aside.

  3. Preheat oven to 400°F. Place stalk on a large baking sheet. Brush bacon fat on sprouts. Place baking pan in bottom half of oven (to keep sprout tops from blackening too much) and roast sprouts about 40 minutes or until soft.

  1. I love all things bacon and brussels sprouts – you really can’t go wrong with the added honey and sriracha! 🙂 YUM.

    • Me too! There’s so many ways to prepare sprouts. I was having a hard time choosing which direction, but I just had some delicious honey sriracha bacon at the new S&M restaurant, so honey sriracha it is!

  2. I have to try this!! But I will have to eat the whole stalk myself, as I am the only one that likes them. But who knows, maybe the Sriracha will convince the others to try it! Looks delicious!!

    • I have to eat it mostly by myself too. Mr. K rarely likes brussels sprouts. he’ll eat a little if there’s bacon, but not that much.

  3. This looks quite impressive – I would like to try this recipe for my family. I know Bert would like it because he likes Sriracha anything. : )  Plus bacon…..yes.

  4. Brussels sprouts are always amazing, but they look SO COOL on the stalk like this! I love it! Plus sriracha and bacon, yum.

  5. I’ve never tried roasting brussels sprouts on the stalks.  Very creative!  I am, however, very familiar with the delicious combination of brussels and bacon 🙂  It’s a staple here at our house.
