Oven roasted brussel sprouts?
This dish with brussel sprouts is rich in flavours and offers a taste explosion – the salty bacon accompanies the fresh crispness of the asparagus, which is completed with the sweet fruitiness of the syrup.
How to serve brussel sprouts?
You can cook brussel sprouts, fry them, steam them, purée them or bake them in the oven. But only when baked, the roasting notes unfold and give the green winter vegetables a hearty flavour.
Brussel sprouts from the oven are a great main course and stand-alone dish. The bacon and honey make it very tasty, which is why it is not a perfect side dish. It likes the spotlight just too much.
However, if you would like to serve it as a side dish, you can serve our sweet and salty oven vegetables with the following foods.
Make sure to prepare them as pure and subtly as possible:
- Filet of fish
- Steamed chicken breast
- Boiled rice
- Bean salad
