These bacon Brussels sprouts are easy to make and tossed with an irresistible drizzle of hot honey.


  • 6 ounces uncooked bacon, sliced into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pound Brussels sprouts, halved lengthwise (with ends trimmed off)
  • fine sea salt and freshly-ground black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons hot honey, homemade or store-bought


  1. Fry the bacon. Cook the bacon in a large sauté pan over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until crispy. Remove pan from heat and use a slotted spoon to strain and transfer the bacon to a clean plate. Leave 2 tablespoons of the bacon grease in the pan, and discard any extra grease.
  2. Sauté the Brussels sprouts. Add the olive oil to the pan and return it to medium heat. Add the Brussels, trying to place as many flat-side-down in the pan as possible. Season with a generous pinch of salt and pepper. Sauté for about 5-7 minutes, tossing the Brussels sprouts occasionally (once every minute or so) so that they can lightly brown and caramelize, until they are cooked and tender.
  3. Finish. Remove pan from heat. Add in the crispy bacon and drizzle the hot honey evenly over the mixture. Toss briefly to combine.
  4. Season. Taste and season with additional salt, pepper or hot honey if needed.
  5. Serve. Serve warm and enjoy!
