Roasted Brussel Sprouts with Spicy Garlic Aioli

Roasted Brussel Sprouts with Spicy Garlic Aioli

Ingredients

  • fresh Brussels sprouts (I had about a pound)
  • 4 -5 strips of bacon
  • 1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)
  • 1 cup reduced fat mayonnaise
  • 1 1/2 tsp freshly minced garlic (about 2-3 cloves)
  • 1 Tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1 Tbsp flat leaf parsley, chopped fine

Directions

  1. Quarter the Brussels sprouts. Fry the bacon until crispy, adding a tablespoon of EVOO when about halfway done (to flavor the olive oil with the bacon flavor! yum!). Remove the bacon and drizzle the grease/EVOO over the quartered sprouts. Season with kosher salt and cracked black pepper. Bake cut side up at 400 degrees F for about 23 minutes until golden brown and crispy. While baking, mix up the aioli ingredients. Serve the roasted sprouts hot with the aioli to dip it in.
