Servings 28 bites
- 1/2 pound trimmed and halved brussel sprouts (about 2 1/2 cups)
- 1/2 tablespoon avocado oil
- 1/3 cup blue cheese crumbles (about 1.5 ounces)
- 2 pieces of bacon (cut into 1 inch pieces)
- salt and pepper, to taste
Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Toss the halved brussel sprouts with avocado oil and some salt and pepper. Place face down (cut side down) on a parchment lined baking sheet and roast for 12-15 minutes. While the brussel sprouts cook, prep the cheese and bacon as needed.
Take brussel sprouts out of the oven and flip over so the halved side is up (the flat part). Take about 1/2-1 teaspoon of blue cheese, or a small crumble, and top each brussel sprout. Then top with a piece of the bacon and spear with a toothpick. Try to make sure they are standing straight up so the cheese does not melt out the sides. I also like to sprinkle the tops with a little pepper.
Put them back in the oven for 10-15 minutes or until bacon is crispy. Let cool for a couple of minutes and serve!
