    Sheet Pan Brussel Sprouts

    Brussels sprouts – you either love or hate them. Admittedly, I must place myself in the second category and – yet – today, I am publishing a recipe in which everything revolves around the smallest of all cabbage types. Alas, this means one thing: it is a recipe that will bring even those who despise Brussels sprouts to their knees.

    You might ask yourself why I insist on eating vegetables that I basically don’t like at all. It is the nutrients that motivate me: Brussels sprouts are a real vitamin C bomb! 112 milligrams of this vitamin are found in 100g Brussels sprouts alone – which easily exceeds the daily dose recommended by experts. It is also beneficial for the digestive tract: bitter substances contained in Brussels sprouts soothe the gastric mucosa and the fiber ensures long-lasting energy and supports intestinal activity. In addition, Brussels sprouts are a particularly digestible type of cabbage that usually does not cause gas or stomach pain.

    Years of research on Brussels sprouts led me to hypothesize the elements of a perfect recipe:

    • Brussel sprouts are better baked than cooked
    • Brussel sprouts need both, acidity and sweetness
    • Everything tastes better with bacon

    Hypotheses are there to be verified – grab the Brussels sprouts and test it for yourself!
