cookie sheet, sprouts – cut them in half – lightly oil the foil-lined pan – oven 375F for about 20 minutes. pull out – put chopped bacon on top and around the sprouts – put back in the oven for 20 more minutes.
Background: If you put bacon on for the amount of time it takes to cook the sprouts, you’ll burn the F out of it. About 20 minutes at 375 is perfect for bacon, but at 375 it takes closer to 35-40 for the sprouts. This makes it all work out perfectly.
If I’m not doing them this way, I cut the sprouts in half and drop them in a 375F deep fryer for about 5-6 minutes, fry them in batches
